Three Saskatchewan communities, Kipling & District, Moose Jaw, and Regina, received Age-Friendly Recognition at the Saskatchewan Legislature on November 22, 2022. A fourth community, Rosetown, was honoured for Maintaining Recognition in December, 2022.

To receive the initial recognition, each community completed four Age-Friendly milestones: establishing an Age-Friendly Committee, achieving local government support, assessing the community, and implementing an action plan. They join other communities already recognized: Regina Beach/Buena Vista/Kinookimaw, Rosetown, Saskatoon, and Strasbourg.

The status of Maintaining Recognition is unique to SSM and Saskatchewan, and recognizes that initial Provincial Recognition is not the destination but a multi-year journey. We are not aware of any program like this in the rest of Canada.

We congratulate these communities, and express our appreciation to Minister Hindley and the Government of Saskatchewan for hosting the event.
