The Active Aging Collaborative (AAC) was established in September 2011. The Sunrise Health Region, Parkland Valley District and community groups partnered together and identified the need for a sustainable community based peer-directed physical activity program for older adults in the Parkland Valley District.
The program was developed to enhance the physical activity of older adults who otherwise might not have the opportunity to participate. The goal of the program is to enable older adults to maintain a quality of life, independence, and expand active living opportunities.
We are looking for new Volunteer Peer Leaders and Program Host locations within our District to participate in the Active Aging program. View the Active Aging video here. Please contact us for more information.
A welcoming and inclusive community is a community where its citizens and members feel safe, respected, and comfortable in being themselves and expressing all aspects of their identities. It is a place where each person shares a sense of belonging with its other members. That is why the Multicultural Council of Saskatchewan (MCoS) and Saskatchewan Urban Municipalities Association (SUMA) have partnered together to create an eight-module toolkit, as part of the Welcoming and Inclusive Communities (WIC) | #WelcomeHome150 initiative.
This tool kit provides accessible ideas to community leaders to build relationships with groups that have not often been seen as leaders, in order to both identify how they see themselves contributing and what, if any, changes need to be made to existing places and processes to make newcomers and Indigenous people feel that there are opportunities for engagement based on mutual respect. MCoS and SUMA encourage communities big and small to take advantage of the toolkit and make your hometowns welcoming and inclusive to everyone.
Please contact a Parkland Valley District staff member if you or your community is interested in a facilitated Welcoming & Inclusive Community Session.

Volunteerism is a crucial and vital contribution to the success of Sport, Culture and Recreation in our district. However, volunteerism is constantly evolving and changing and it is important as a District we also adapt. According to Volunteer Canada, “there have been significant shifts in the way people want to be engaged. Volunteers seek a range of options and opportunities where they can see the value and impact of their contributions in the community. More people are interested in group volunteering, short-term assignments and virtual volunteering, and they view volunteering as a way of contributing or gaining skills.”
The Volunteer Toolbox will assist you in the selection, supervision, engagement and recognition of volunteers.
