Intergenerational Day Canada
June 1, 2022Free
Description: June 1st is INTERGENERATIONAL DAY CANADA. Since 2010, this day has been officially recognized by 12 provinces and territories and over 100 Canadian cities. New Brunswick, Manitoba and Ontario governments have proclaimed the day ‘in perpetuity’, giving year-long importance to this healthy community initiative. It is a day to reflect and act upon the boundless opportunities for intergenerational engagement.
Why is this important?
Research has shown that by simply encouraging intentional and respectful intergenerational relationships, isolation and loneliness are dissipated in both generations: improving mental, social, physical and emotional health.
