AGE-WELL’s 3rd Annual EPIC Summer Institute 

Co-Creating Possibilities: Leisure, Recreation, and Wellness – Opportunities for Engaging the Older Adult


June 18 – 22, 2018

The Banff Centre in Banff, Alberta

Applications are forum based and will be open between March 1 – April 3, 2018.

Located in the heart of the Rocky Mountains, Banff Alberta is surrounded by natural beauty. Outdoor recreation is an integral part of life for many aging adults who live in the area. As we travel to the Banff Centre for the 3rd annual Summer Institute, HQP will be challenged to connect with the natural environment and work directly with stakeholders to think beyond ameliorating health and social conditions associated with older age and towards enabling successful aging and wellness. We will co-create concepts for innovative products – technologies, policies, and services – that improve quality of life as well as social and economic inclusion in society with a focus on leisure and recreation.


  • Applicants must be current network HQP in good standing (e.g. have completed reporting requirements, returned all signed documents etc.) who have not attended a previous AGE-WELL Summer Institute
  • Preference will be given to HQP who have made measurable progress towards completing, or have completed, the EPIC (Early Professionals, Inspired Careers) training program
