What is Ageism?

Prejudice is how we feel. Discrimination is how we act. Stereotypes are what we say.

Preparing for International Day of Older Persons on October 1
In 1990, the United Nations declared International Day of Older Persons. This day was recognized in Alberta in 2017 with a minister declaration, and since then communities across Alberta have joined the movement and made their own declarations.
International Day of Older Persons gives us the opportunity to: recognize and acknowledge older Albertans and their contributions to our communities; raise awareness about older adults’ interests and concerns; and address misconceptions about aging.
What can you do?
- Declare October 1 as International Day of Older Persons in your community.
- Celebrate with a flag raising, tea, lunch, or an afternoon of local entertainment!
