In 2016 and 2017, CHAM held workshops in Winnipeg and Brandon. These workshops focused on the Global Strategy and Action Plan. The purpose of the workshops was to gain perspectives on healthy aging in the province of Manitoba.
In 2018, CHAM facilitated a series of workshops in various locations in Manitoba:
Participants were asked to discuss what Manitoba is doing well and what could be improved with each of the following three strategic areas from the Global Strategy and Action Plan: age-friendly environments, health systems, and long-term care.
For the 2018 events, almost 100 participants contributed their input at the 2.5 hour workshops. Those attending the events included: older adults, health care practitioners, policy makers, employees from regional health authorities, and those working with organizations associated with older people.
The Centre on Aging, in collaboration with the Manitoba Association of Senior Centres, hosted a half day presentation and discussions on reports by the World Health Organization and Province of Manitoba on health and aging.
