Celebrating LIFE and Our Coming of Age Speaker Series

As our population continues to age, there is a growing demand for accessible and high-quality education focusing on topics related to healthy ageing.

In response, Programs for 50+ at Ryerson University’s G. Raymond Chang School of Continuing Education and the LIFE Institute, celebrating their 25th Anniversary, have partnered with Mount Sinai Hospital’s Healthy Ageing and Geriatrics Program to present an inaugural five-part education series, Celebrating LIFE and Our Coming of Age, which will present a variety of topics important to all of us as we age.

We welcome you to join us for one or all of our sessions as we seek to educate, discuss, and celebrate many aspects that are essential to healthy ageing.

Responding to the Threat of Terrorism – a Canadian Perspective

Ongoing terrorist threats such as the recent attacks in Paris, the murders of two Canadian soldiers last fall, and the rise of ISIS and Islamic extremism pose a unique challenge to countries around the world, including Canada. Dealing with such threats requires finding a delicate balance between security and individual rights.

Join us on March 23, for this fascinating and relevant discussion, the first in a series of lectures that will explore some of today’s most important issues. The Honourable David Collenette, Distinguished Visiting Fellow with The Chang School and the Faculty of Engineering and Architectural Science at Ryerson University, will explore this theme in his lecture, Responding to the Threat of Terrorism – a Canadian Perspective.

A 90-minute focus group will be held on campus in late March (evening session, details TBA) to obtain your input. All participants will receive a $20 gift card to the Ryerson Campus Store.

Interested in participating?
Send your name and contact information to Elaine Lam, Executive Director of Business Development and Strategic Planning at The Chang School, at elaine.lam@ryerson.ca with the subject line 'Campus Store Focus Group' before March 13, 2015.
