Senior Pride Network Niagara Meeting @ Niagara Region Headquarters
Jun 18 @ 2:30 pm
This meeting of the Senior Pride Network Niagara will be a chance to network among peers about making your program, service or residence a welcoming and safe place for older LGBTQ members, participants, residents, staff and volunteers. There will also be a presentation by Hailea Squires of Positive Living in HIV/AIDS and Aging. As AIDS is now a manageable condition, people with AIDS are living longer, seeking services in the community, moving into retirement and long term care settings, it is important for organizations to prepare to serve this population. Senior Pride Network Niagara is looking for volunteers to assist with the work of the Network. Please check your schedule and consider lending a hand. This meeting is hosted by the Senior Pride Network Niagara.

Business of Ageing Niagara Network June Event: Combating Ageism – What Does This Mean for Your Business? @ Niagara College
Jun 20 @ 5:30 pm – 7:30 pm

The Business of Ageing Niagara Network (BANN), launched by AGEWORKS™ in conjunction with Niagara College, is a membership-based networking group for individuals who are interested in learning more about issues pertaining to an ageing population, age inclusiveness and targeting older adults.

At this event, Pat Spadafora (Kaleidoscope Consulting and Founder & Former Executive Director of Sheridan Centre for Elder Research) speaks on how Ageism can affect your bottom line.

How is ageism perpetuated through everyday language, images, jokes and advertising?
How do you challenge your own attitudes towards ageism and begin to shift perceptions?
How do we ensure age-friendly businesses become the norm in Niagara?

Meetings will be held quarterly at Niagara College, Welland Campus on Wednesday evenings between 5:30 -7:30pm. Each meeting will have a relevant speaker/presentation topic for 30-45 minute, then 1.5-hour networking session. Refreshments will be served at each meeting.

BANN will connect businesses, industry leaders and subject matter experts by providing a platform for collaboration, professional development and resource sharing relating to issues pertaining to an ageing population, age inclusiveness and the longevity economy. The network offers a forum to come together to discuss business opportunities and to share information and ideas about diversifying their markets and expanding focus to benefit older consumers and leverage age inclusiveness.

This event is hosted by the Business of Ageing Niagara Network.

Making School Zones Safer: Partnership-Based School Traffic Management @ Online
Jun 21 @ 1:00 pm – 2:00 pm

Across the country, traffic and dangerous driver behaviours around schools are increasingly frequent as more and more students are driven to school compared to previous generations. At older schools, the situation is often made worse because those sites were never designed to accommodate car traffic in the first place, as they were designed at a time when a majority of children walked to school.

In the city of Toronto, the Toronto District School Board has partnered with Green Communities Canada to tackle this issue through a pilot project called the School Traffic Management Program, which closely follows the School Travel Planning model. The program’s launch in Fall 2017 aligned with the launch of the City of Toronto’s Vision Zero Road Safety Strategy. Seizing this unique opportunity, stakeholders from both programs have been working closely with one another, bringing together staff from schools, police, public health and traffic operations. Through these collaborations, stakeholders in Toronto are building momentum and making gains toward school zone safety and active school travel unlike any the City has seen in recent history.

This webinar will explore how the School Traffic Management Program was established, describe some of the challenges of working collaboratively across departments, and give examples of some of the success stories of this work so far.

Presenter: Laura Zeglen, School Traffic Management Facilitator at Green Communities Canada

This webinar is hosted by Green Communities Canada.
