New Partnership Agreement to  Benefit Older Adults and Urban Governments

On December 10, 2014 the Saskatchewan Urban Municipalities Association (SUMA) and the Saskatchewan Seniors Mechanism (SSM) signed a partnership agreement that will aim to improve public policy related to older adults and local governments.

As the voice of urban Saskatchewan, SUMA looks for opportunities to work with organizations that share our interests. Our aging population will have a huge impact on the future of our cities, towns, and villages and SUMA wanted to work with an organization that understood the concerns of older adults. The SSM brings together Saskatchewan seniors’ organizations to contribute to a better quality of life for our province’s older adults. The SSM is recognized for its leadership, integrity and service in addressing older adults’ issues in Saskatchewan.

“Demographics in Saskatchewan are shifting and older adults are vital members of our urban communities,” said SUMA President, Debra Button. “In many cases, these are the people who helped turn our cities, towns, and villages into the great communities they are today. By working with the SSM, SUMA is helping our members create age-friendly communities.”

SSM President, Robert Wuschenny, says “Many of today's older adults are young in spirit, active folks who continue to make a significant contribution to our society through a wide variety of volunteer, social and economic activities. Age-friendly communities will serve to enhance older adults' wellbeing as they age in place. Working with SUMA will help SSM address issues of importance to older adults and this benefits the whole community.”

SUMA and the SSM look forward to developing their relationship to enhance the quality of life in Saskatchewan.
