The Supporting Inclusion through Intergenerational Partnerships (SIIP) program is about reducing social isolation and building meaningful relationships that span across generations. SIIP works with organizations throughout Waterloo Region who provide opportunities for older adults living with dementia, their care partners, and youth to connect and interact in purposeful ways.

SIIP is hosted at the Schlegel-UW Research Institute for Aging (RIA) with funding provided by the Government of Canada’s New Horizons for Seniors Program (NHSP).

A number of resources and products – annual collective impact reports, quarterly summaries – have been developed to support social inclusion, see the list below for more information.
