Seniors Week celebrates older adults and all their contributions. Celebrate by participating in some of the activities below June 5 - 11, at Century House.
Seniors in the City Getting Engaged - Your Community, Your City
Spend an afternoon with New Westminster City Councillor Ruby Campbell, exploring how to engage with your City. We will delve into Be Heard New West, the interactive, online space where community members can learn about a variety of City projects and share their feedback and ideas, learn how to find out about completed city projects and find related information, search the City’s open data catalogue (and find out why it is super cool!), and discuss what opportunities are there to contribute to decision making processes and share who does what in your City.
