This month we will conclude our 2-Year Elder Care Research Project with a "Bridging the Gap" Planning Forum on June 15, 2016 which is also the International day for Elder Abuse Awareness. For this forum, we have invited a number of policymakers, government officials and service provider organizations to engage with the findings and recommendations proposed by our project and to discuss the next steps in addressing elder care in the Chinese community.

And now onto a few exciting announcements!
We have two new upcoming projects! The first is a Chinese Seniors' Storytelling Workshop Projectfunded by the New Horizons for Seniors Program, Government of Canada. This project will involve a group of Chinese seniors in a series of storytelling workshops using visual art and food. The purpose of this workshop series is to provide a space where Chinese seniors can freely express themselves and build relationships with one another. There will be a final event where the community will be invited to celebrate their artistic creations and stories. This project is a partnership with ALPHA Education and ArtHeart Community Art Centre will be providing the visual art studio/kitchen venue.
The second project is the East Asian Youth Civic Activism & Wellness Project funded by Ontario Trillium Foundation. This is a one year project in partnership with ALPHA Education that will take place at 3 secondary schools where 3 groups of youth will develop communication skills, critical thinking, explore mental health wellness and create community-based projects of their own.
We look forward to giving you more updates about these two projects so stay tuned.
