WE ARE AN INCLUSIVE ENGAGED COMMUNITY POWERED BY THE JOYFUL CONNECTION WE SHARE WITH EACH OTHER
Located in the heart of Nanaimo, B.C., we are passionate advocates for the rights, aspirations and well-being of older adults. Our residents are leaders and mentors. They are doctors, teachers, bricklayers and preachers. They are experience, memory, history and wisdom. And this is home
EMPOWERED. THRIVING. EVERYONE INCLUDED
WE ARE STEERING PERSONAL WELL-BEING TOWARDS JOY
By reframing attitudes about aging, Kiwanis Village is bringing purpose, meaning and joy to the lives of older adults. “Old” is not an age. Wrinkles aren’t “ugly.” And aging isn’t a “problem.” Older age is an opportunity. It is the right to experience love, joy and wellness without discrimination
