Toronto Intergenerational Partnerships (TIGP)

Bringing Generations and Communities Together Since 1986

VISION

We work towards a society that values, supports and welcomes the contributions of all individuals throughout their lives.

For this reason we engage the participation of people of all ages, backgrounds and experiences in a variety of intergenerational activities.

PRINCIPLES

We believe in:

  •  Respecting and valuing the ways of all ages, backgrounds and experiences
  •  Respecting and valuing the thinking of all generations
  •  Eliminating artificial and systemic barriers created by age stereotyping and all other forms of discrimination
  •  Extending and sharing intergenerational support beyond family and acquaintances

OBJECTIVES

  • We promote intergenerational harmony and lifelong learning
  • We design and deliver intergenerational support programs in  partnership with the community
  • We design and deliver programs which encourage participation of individuals of all ages, backgrounds and experiences
  • We strive to become a centre of best practices for intergenerational programming
  • We promote and incorporate in all our activities access and equity principles
  • We select diverse community agencies with whom we can form specific finite renegotiable partnerships. The goal of such partnerships is an intergenerational program under the auspices of the partner's agency.
