With a growing number of Albertans living longer, the need for community-based supports is greater than ever. Collective action is essential to meeting this need.
Organizations and groups from many different sectors are working together — known as the ‘Network of Stakeholders’ (or simply ‘the Network’) — to transform how healthy aging is imagined, invested in, and supported in Edmonton.
This is an intentional community-centred network. The Network of Stakeholders will collectively reimagine how we support older Edmontonians to age well in their communities. By leveraging diverse perspectives, experiences, and expertise, a network can solve complex challenges and emerging issues better than any one group.
The Network has an Interim Collective Leadership Group (ICLG) which champions the work and engages stakeholders in priority-setting.
The Edmonton Seniors Coordinating Council is supporting the Network and its ICLG by providing facilitation, information management, project development, partnership development, and support in associated work.
Join the Edmonton Network of Stakeholders — you can be part of a larger puzzle that we are working to collectively solve. Contact Sheila@seniorscouncil.net to join.

The Edmonton Network of Stakeholders meets regularly to advance work, issues, and connections to support healthy aging in Edmonton. The meetings are known as Network Gatherings, formerly called Stewardship Round Table (SRT) meetings.
View the most recent Network Gathering below. Previous sessions are available on ESCC's YouTube page.
