City of Waterloo (Ontario)

The City of Waterloo and Recreational Respite connected in April 2021 after sharing recent details about a seniors programming project in rural Ontario, that promoted new and existing recreational opportunities for seniors (both in-person and virtual options) and in response to the isolation for so many, during COVID19. The goal of this collaboration includes reducing isolation, encouraging social connection and promoting optimal wellness for seniors of all abilities.

We surveyed local seniors (October 31, 2021) in this region and received over 600 responses!

Thank you for your shares and participation!
