Multicultural Seniors Day 2021

Celebrate seniors with MOSAIC!

Register for the 2021 Multicultural Seniors Day event here.


On Friday, October 1, join MOSAIC for the 10th annual Multicultural Seniors Day celebration.

This annual event pays tribute to immigrant and refugee seniors for their contributions to Canadian society. The celebration is held in conjunction with National Seniors Day in Canada, and the event’s 10th  anniversary is a special milestone.

“The first Seniors Day in 2012 was just a small event with less than 100 people, largely planned by our staff members. It grew into a community celebration with more than 500 participants in 2019. COVID doesn’t stop this annual celebration, and I’m so excited to see a hybrid way to celebrate this event,” said Daisy Au, MOSAIC’s Seniors Club Coordinator.

This year’s theme is ‘My journey through COVID’, and there will be both virtual and in-person attendance options. According to Daisy Au, MOSAIC’s Seniors Club Coordinator, COVID-19 has had a deep impact on newcomer seniors, and the theme was chosen to reflect their experiences.

“The biggest challenge for many immigrant seniors is language, which is the major barrier to access services or get connected with the communities. It’s hard to be alone – we need community to support each other during the pandemic journey.”

As part of the event, seniors’ artwork around the theme ‘Letters to COVID’ will be exhibited. An art-based study conducted in partnership with Simon Fraser University will also be highlighted titled ‘Storied lives – an impact study of COVID-19 on seniors and their community support services’.
