The Elders in Motion Program aims to improve access to physical activity opportunities for NWT elders. Elders in Motion works to increase independence and functional mobility for older adults. The program includes training and support for communities, groups and individuals interested in developing and maintaining an elder recreation program.
The Elders in Motion is a partnership program between the NWT Recreation and Parks Association, the Dene Nation, the Canadian Centre for Activity and Aging with support from the NWT Seniors’ Society and the NWT Department of Health and Social Services. Together we have developed a series of training programs fit for northern communities.
Applications are now being accepted for Elders in Motion Support.
