“The greatest untapped resource in Canada, if not the world, is the collective wisdom of our elders.”

-Ron Schlegel

#ElderWisdom is dedicated to challenging the stigma and ageism that older adults often face in our society. It reminds us of the wealth of wisdom that seniors offer and helps restore them to a place of reverence and respect. The Green Bench, a symbol of Elder Wisdom, invites you—whether in person or virtually—to sit alongside a senior, engage in meaningful conversations, and share valuable advice. Join us in celebrating the stories and experiences of our elders, and let’s work together to build a more inclusive and age-friendly community.

I pledge to restore to a place of reverence the elders of our society, honouring the wisdom our oldest citizens have gained through lifetimes of trials, tribulations, joys and successes. I further vow to end ageism, once and for all counting this unjust form of prejudice unacceptable.
