Our Newest Program Has a New Name

We are pleased to announce that one of our newest programs also has a new name.

The Active Healthy Intergenerational Connections (AHIC) project that got off the ground this fall will now be known as “Generations on the Move.”  The purpose and intentions behind the project will remain the same— encouraging inclusive recreation among all generations and promoting the benefits of healthy and active aging.

The name change was a result of the gathering of older adults held in December 2018 here in Yellowknife. With 10 representatives from Fort Good Hope, Fort Simpson, Fort Smith, Hay River, Inuvik, and Yellowknife, it was great to have at least one representative from each region come together for the gathering! The final activity of the day involved the group collaborating on a new name, and it was exciting to see everyone work together to come up with a shorter name that will be easily recognized, but still relay the spirit of the project.

Keep your eyes open for more coming from Generations on the Move in 2019!
