Seniors Connect is a collaborative project focused on reducing the social isolation of adults age 55 and over in Nanaimo through participation in local activities, increased community  connection and providing older adults meaningful opportunities for engagement. This project is funded in part by the Government of Canada’s New Horizons for Seniors Program and will provide an array of programming through partner organizations.
