Civic Engagement Group (CEG)

The CEG group is formed in 2009.  It is a volunteer led group with an aim to educate older adults in understanding the importance of their participation in the community, thus, to influence public policy.

Service:

By conducting workshops and community forums, participating in council meetings, conducting pools and filing petitions, we ensure voices and opinions regarding issues that impact the life of older adults are being heard. In the past years, we have successfully retained the opening of mobile lab, prevented a huge fee increase in the Senior Transit Pass, and removed the construction of the Cycle Track run through Chinatown. 

Community Collaborative Events:

We actively participate in collaborative community events throughout the year.  We aim to improve access of resources, to facilitate social inclusion and to enrich experience for Chinese older adults.

Events include:

  • Senior Week Activities
  • National Senior Day Celebration
  • Healthy Living and/Resources Fair
  • Wellness Day
