Seniors Program Outreach Project

We established the SFU Seniors Outreach Project to raise awareness and promote discussion among seniors about the many issues affecting them.

The project consists of a series of expert-roundtable DVDs that seniors can watch online or at one of our many partner organizations across Canada. So far, six DVDs have been produced:

  • Perceptions of God and Heaven
  • Multiculturalism and the Canadian Identity
  • Grandparenting in the 21st Century
  • Democracy: The Intent and the Reality
  • Seniors Rights and the Challenge of Elder Abuse
  • A Place for Everyone: Age-friendly Communities

The videos are designed to facilitate dialogue among older adults, promoting awareness and greater understanding about topics of interest to seniors. After the presentation is complete, we encourage seniors to complete an evaluation form.

Working with our Community Partners

Over 4,000 seniors across Canada have seen our outreach project DVDs. We enjoy the support of over 250 partner organizations, who regularly present the videos to older adults in their communities. Partner organizations include public libraries, assisted living centres, senior centres, and community centres.
