Seniors' Guide for British Columbia

The government of BC has produced a book containing resources for seniors. The 10th edition was released in 2012 and in it, one can find information on goverment programs, lifestyle issues (physical activity, recreation, employment etc.), health related issues (health authorities, medical plan, community services etc.), housing, transit, resources, financial issues and safety. The publication is well over 100 pages and can be easily downloaded in PDF format in English, French, Chinese and Punjabi at http://www2.gov.bc.ca/gov/. Alternately, residents can order a free copy through the Health Care Support Line (1-877-952-3181).

Additionally, there is a version specifically geared to First Nations & Aboriginal Seniors. A copy of it is available for download at http://www.fnha.ca/ or a print version can be obtained through the First Nations Health Authority (1-866-913-0033)
