community impact
by the numbers, since the pandemic began

In April 2020, MNjcc Adult Daytime Culture and Education, through a partnership with Centennial College, was awarded a Natural Sciences and Engineering Research Council of Canada (NSREC) grant. The goal of the project was to study the effects of Covid-19 and social distancing (first wave) on the older adults in our community. This year-long project included a survey about all MNjcc programs offered to older adults (55+), in-depth interviews, and a community webinar for seniors organizations and MNjcc partners. 

We are very pleased to share this final report and infographics with you. Key findings include:

  • impact of social distancing on the health and wellness of older adults

  • seniors’ coping strategies

  • programing preferences during and post social distancing

  • recommendations
