We are very proud to announce our Executive Director, Dr. Haidong Liang in the winner of the 2021 Minister’s Senior Service Award for his work to ensure seniors were kept engaged during the pandemic.

COVID-19 CLOSED OUR CENTRE DOORS BUT WE REMAINED OPEN TO CONTINUE TO SERVE SENIORS

On March 12, 2020, the Alberta Government announced that, in the face of Covid-19, any event expecting over 50 persons should be cancelled. They stated that, “the coming weeks are vital” and that they were, “calling on every Albertan and organization to assist with public health efforts and to comply with the public health guidance.”   The WSAC building was closed to the public March 13, 2020, but Dr. Liang and his staff continued our work to serve our members and seniors here in Edmonton and beyond.

On Thursday, October 21st, 2021, Minister Josephine Pon presented Dr. Liang with his award.  Click on the video below to watch the presentation!
