Older Adults Recreation


Saanich Parks and Recreation Older Adults Strategy Final Report was submitted to Saanich Council on Monday June 19th and adopted unanimously.  

After 18 months of planning, public engagement, writing, and analysis with over 2400 participants input, this project is now complete and we can begin implementing some of the 89 Action items.

Please open the Older Adults Strategy [PDF - 23.9 MB] Final Report to review the findings, priorities, and proposed goals and actions for the years 2017-2022. This strategy will guide Saanich Parks and Recreation in delivering even better programs and services to its residents. Hard copies of the report are available to interested parties. Please contact Julie Wallace at julie.wallace@saanich.ca or 250-475-5408.

A huge thank you to all who participated in the research, analysis and review of drafts, and especially to our community Project and Research Teams for their help and commitment!
