The Dementia-Friendly Canada project is a partnership between the Alzheimer Societies of Canada, B.C., Saskatchewan, Manitoba and Ontario. Each of the partnering provinces has been successful in creating dementia-friendly communities. This project will help expand on the work being done in these provinces to create tools, education and programing that will allow for the development of dementia-friendly communities across the country. This presentation will speak to the Dementia-Friendly Canada project, including an overview of the project goals, a presentation of findings from our 2020 focus groups, an introduction to several resources that are currently in progress and a summary of next step.
