Intergenerational Day, June 1st.
In 2012, Mayor Naheed Nenshi proclaimed that the City of Calgary will observe Intergenerational Day on June 1. Since then, LINKages has held celebrations to mark the connecting of generations and its contribution towards an age-friendly society. Since its inception, IG Day has been attended by hundreds of Calgarians every year and well supported by local communities where events take place. Many thanks to the United Way of Calgary and Area, for their support of IG Day.
In 2017, the Province of Alberta proclaimed Intergenerational Day on June 1st as a provincially observed day.
LINKages celebrates Intergenerational Day every year with a special event including preformances, activities and more! Stay tuned for next year’s big event!
