Community Links and the Nova Scotia Centre on Aging invites photo submissions

Many older Nova Scotians are living vibrant, active lives and are engaged in their communities. This project aims to collect photos that help tell this story, change how older Nova Scotians are viewed and recognize important contributions made to family and community. The project invites photos that reflect the diversity of communities and of older Nova Scotians.
