Kaslo is one of 11 BC communities being honoured for helping seniors remain safe, active and independent.
In a news release this week, the health ministry announced the village will receive $1,000 to create a legacy project or celebration.
The Age-friendly BC Recognition program is a partnership between the BC Healthy Communities Society and Ministry of Health.
Kaslo becomes one of 36 BC communities to receive Age-friendly BC Recognition. Riondel, Creston, and Revelstoke are among the others.
The designation requires four key steps, including establishing an age-friendly advisory or steering committee, passing a council resolution, conducting an age-friendly assessment, and developing and publishing an action plan.
