Since 1998, the Minister’s Seniors Service Awards have recognized outstanding Albertans or organizations who volunteer their time to make a difference in the lives of seniors.

Following the community celebrations, all nominations will be reviewed by a Nomination Review Committee which will then forward recommendations to the Minister. The Minister of Seniors and Housing will select the award recipients. The recipients of the award will be selected later in the summer and recognized at a special event to be held in Edmonton in the fall. Information about nominees and recipients will be released to the media and posted on the ministry website.

Scrapbooking Visit with St. Theresa Catholic School and Bedford Village

As we end each Linking Generations program year, our students and seniors take the time to recapture all the memories that have been created the past ten months.
It is so rewarding to witness the seniors and students discussing “the Best Visit” or hearing them share “Do you remember this….”.

Using pictures of their visits the students and seniors built an album of memories.
