Each year the Centre hosts a one-day Spring Research Symposium, which promotes dialogue between university researchers and the community-at-large. The Symposium program typically includes opening plenary and afternoon keynote sessions as well as concurrent sessions. Research posters by researchers and students are presented to encourage promotion and dissemination of knowledge of aging in the community. The Symposium brings together researchers, students, seniors, and representatives from community organizations, health and social agencies, and government.
