These resolutions will be debated and voted on. Those passed will be forwarded in a brief to the various government ministries involved.
There will be speakers representing provincial and local government as well as presentations on other timely topics of interest to seniors.
This year the U.S.C.O. convention is dedicated to "Senior Awareness, Continuing to Care"
