Alberta heralds International Day of Older Persons

Lori Sigurdson, Minister of Seniors and Housing, is declaring Oct. 1 International Day of Older Persons.

“This is the first time in Alberta’s history that International Day of Older Persons has been declared. Seniors built this province and stitched together our cultural and social fabric. They continue to make important contributions daily. We are grateful for their significant contributions and are looking forward to honouring them with their special day.”

Lori Sigurdson, Minister of Seniors and Housing

International Day of Older Persons was established by the United Nations in 1990 and has been celebrated in Canada as National Seniors Day since 2010.
