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.
