April 4, 2019; Liverpool, NS:  Queens County is one of three communities selected to participate in the next round of Redefining Retirement.

The program is free to participants. It is sponsored by the Nova Scotia Department of Seniors in partnership with Region of Queens Municipality. This program is aimed at recognizing and celebrating the contribution older adults make to their community and was successfully piloted in 2018 in Yarmouth, Windsor, and St. Margaret’s Bay. 

The sessions will be facilitated by the Acadia Entrepreneurship Centre (www.acadiaecentre.com) and Third Sector Enhancement Ltd. (https://thirdsectorenhancement.com).

Briefly: Redefining Retirement is a free, 5-part workshop series that helps older adults (typically 55+) answer such questions as: How can I make my retirement better? What am I going to do when I retire? In contrast to the many retirement programs that focus solely on finances, this program is about enabling older adults to determine how they will engage with their communities, deploy their skills, and connect with like-minded people once they ‘retire’. The program originated from the observation that even though many people in their 60s, 70s, and 80s (and even 90s) are ‘retired’ in the traditional sense, they still have important social and economic contributions to make. This program helps participants live fully and purposefully in their later years, to the benefit of all.

 The workshops in the series are interactive and begin on April 30, 2019. Participation is limited to approximately 25 participants. Registration is now open by visiting the Redefining Retirement website at www.redefiningretirement.ca.
