Past CHAM events

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 2018–2019, CHAM facilitated a series of workshops in various locations in Manitoba:

Gimli May 31, 2018
Winkler September 13, 2018
Thompson September 26, 2018
Notre-Dame-de-Lourdes October 15, 2018
Winnipeg January 23, 2019
Beausejour September 27, 2019
Dauphin October 2, 2019
The Pas October 3, 2019

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.
