    Name: Placentia Age Friendly Expo
    Date: April 28, 2023
    Event Description:
     In an Age-Friendly community, the physical, social, and political environments support people of all ages in meeting their daily needs. The goal of the Age-Friendly Placentia initiative is to promote a high quality of life, comfort and security, and meaningful social inclusion by accommodating the physical, behavioral, economic, and social changes a person may experience in their lifetime living in the Placentia area.

    This community-driven action plan was put into place by the Placentia Chamber of Commerce based on the meaningful involvement of the residents, organizations, and businesses that make up the Placentia community.

    A major part of the Chamber’s Age Friendly initiative is the Annual Age Friendly Expo, a fun, information-packed, and successful event for all ages.  It is events like these that bring much-needed awareness to our residents and businesses.

    It is the Placentia Chamber of Commerce’s belief that continued improvements will benefit everyone:  businesses, families, and individuals, now and in the future.

    The Atlantic Chamber of Commerce is taking proactive steps to promote reconciliation and respect for Indigenous rights within the corporate sector. In response to the Truth and Reconciliation Commission's Call to Action 92, the Chamber urges its members to embrace the United Nations Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples as a guiding framework. This entails a commitment to meaningful consultation, fostering respectful relationships, and obtaining the free, prior, and informed consent of Indigenous peoples before embarking on economic projects. Moreover, the Chamber advocates for equitable access to employment, training, and educational opportunities for Indigenous communities, ensuring they reap sustainable benefits from economic development initiatives.


    Recognizing the importance of education, the Chamber encourages businesses to provide comprehensive training for management and staff on the history of Indigenous peoples, including the legacy of residential schools, Indigenous rights, and Aboriginal-Crown relations. Emphasizing intercultural competency, conflict resolution, and anti-racism, these efforts aim to foster a more inclusive and harmonious corporate environment rooted in mutual understanding and respect.
