Community Outreach Staff
An important goal of the CCAA was the development of an extensive community outreach division to apply activity and aging research findings to community programs to ultimately promote the independence of older adults.
Develop model activity programs that are applications of research findings that will increase the activity levels of older adults and encourage maintenance of an independent lifestyle;
Disseminate evidence-based physical activity leadership courses and workshops provincially, nationally and internationally;
Be recognized as having the gold-standard certification for instructors of exercise programming for older adults;
Provide exercise testing and exercise prescriptions for the community, both for internal and outreach programs, and educate and train exercise specialists for careers in this area;
Provide, through courses, seminars, workshops, the opportunity for physical activity advocates and leaders, including older adults, to develop expertise in physical activity for older adults;
Establish and maintain partnerships with agencies that provide physical activity programs for seniors;
Develop strategies to engage a larger segment of older adults, who do not normally participate in fitness activities;
Act as consultants to assist communities in addressing physical inactivity among older adults.
