Voices of Burnaby Seniors Society
Advocating for seniors by seniors
Voices of Burnaby Seniors Society (VOBSS), is a group of seniors (55+) who are committed to enhance the lives of Burnaby seniors through:
Raising awareness and advocating for seniors' needs
Improving access to information
Increasing connections and contact between individuals and service providers who can help address those needs, and
Developing or supporting projects to address challenges to seniors' ability to live independently.
The goal of VOBSS is to make efforts to support all Burnaby seniors in being healthy, independent and connected members of our community. VOBSS is led and informed by community seniors working with the City of Burnaby and community, government and service provider organizations to support Burnaby in being an age-friendly community.
