International Day of Older Persons

International Day of Older Persons

IDOP Launch in the Outaouais

On December 14, 1990, the United Nations General Assembly proclaimed October 1st as the International Day of Older Persons.
At a press conference held on September 28, the TCARO and the Conférence des Tables régionales de concertation des aînés du Québec (CTRCAQ) jointly launched the activities of the International Day of Older Persons at the provincial level. 
During the conference, a capsule from Mrs. Marguerite Blais, Minister responsible for seniors was presented and an oak tree, blessed by Monsignor Durocher, Archbishop of Gatineau was planted to symbolize the strength and solidity of the presence of our seniors in Quebec.
