Minister of State for Seniors

On Wednesday, Dec. 12,  Langley MLA Mary Polak and Minister of State for Seniors, Ralph Sultan, will be at the Langley Senior Resources Centre, to meet with the seniors of the Langley community.

A senior himself at 79 years old, Sultan is an economist, educator and businessperson who also maintains registration as a professional engineer.

The MLAs will be at the Centre from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m.

During the first hour Sultan will speak on the government initiatives designed to help improve the lives of seniors in British Columbia.

He will give an overview of his role as the Minister of State for Seniors and also discuss how he wants to plan with seniors, not for seniors as well as how seniors can help each other.

Sultan will also ask seniors to share their ideas on how to help them stay healthy and happy in their own homes as long as possible.

In the second hour the MLAs plan to speak with community members in the dining room at the centre.

Everyone is welcome to attend. Registration for this event is not necessary. If you would like additional information please call 604-530-3020 or email info@lsrs.ca

The Langley Senior Resources Centre is located at 20605 51B Ave.
