We conduct community-engaged research.

Working with community organizations, health authorities, government, and older adults themselves, we design, evaluate, and implement physical activity and social connectedness interventions that are meaningful and add value.  Through authentic partnerships, our research is having a far-reaching impact on the community and on the lives of older adults.


Our partners work with us in many ways. Some inform the design and/or deliver interventions, and others provide essential funding. We appreciate learning from our partners' expertise and experience in delivering fun, diverse health-promoting opportunities for people of all ages. We are grateful to them all:

The Active Aging Society supports evidence-based initiatives that help older adults to be physically active and socially connected.

We are grateful to the Ministry of Health for generous funds to deliver Active Aging BC to support the health of older adults.
