Older adults in Brantford can pick up a passport that lets them travel through the city and participate in a variety of free activities, workshops and other events.
The 2023 Healthy Aging Passport, part of the Brantford Healthy Aging Community Summer Project, is valid from June 1 to Sept. 15.
As part of Brantford’s Healthy Aging Plan, the city has partnered with a number of organizations, including Brant Skills Centre, Brantford Public Library, the Grand River Council on Aging, Community Legal Clinic, Modo Yoga Brant, Victorian Order of Nurses, and Onkwehonwe Games to offer fitness classes, workshops, yoga, cooking demonstrations and other activities.
The passport aims to increase social participation and digital literacy, promote health and wellness, provide community connections and highlight new and existing programs and activities for older adults.
