Age Friendly Edmonton's Respect and Inclusion workshop uses video and online questions to walk you through the training program.


This workshop is a foundational step in meeting two key goals:

  1. Seniors are treated with respect.
  2. Seniors have opportunities to participate in, and be engaged by, their communities.

The workshop is designed to raise awareness of how our attitudes, beliefs and behaviours towards aging and older adults can contribute to ageism in our society. Although ageism is a serious topic, there is no blaming or finger-pointing. We want this workshop to be fun.


All activities are simple, clearly presented and supported by appropriate handout materials. Your own life experiences and openness to learning is all you need for a successful workshop. Through comfortable, interesting and engaging activities, participants will have the opportunity to apply new ways of thinking and acting. At the end, all will be invited to become champions for change in their own families, organizations and communities.

On behalf of the Respect and Inclusion Working Group of Age Friendly Edmonton, thank you! By taking this workshop, you are helping to make Edmonton an age-friendly city where people of all ages are able to flourish.
