CARP Mayoral Debate in Calgary

Centre Street Church, 3900 2nd Street NE

Join CARP, Canada’s largest association for the 45plus, and an audience of Calgary’s most politically engaged voters for a lively debate with the five leading candidates seeking to be Calgary’s next Mayor. They’ll be kicking off the final stretch of their campaign by telling us their strategies to make Calgary an Age-Friendly City.

Issues include barrier-free buildings and streets, affordable and accessible public transit, noise levels, green spaces, and affordable senior housing in high density residential neighbourhoods. Please find attached more information about Age-Friendly Cities, a movement introduced by the World Health Organization.
