About AGE-WELL

(Aging Gracefully across Environments using Technology to Support Wellness, Engagement and Long Life NCE Inc.)

AGE-WELL is Canada’s technology and aging network. Launched in 2015 through the federally-funded Networks of Centres of Excellence (NCE) program. AGE-WELL is dedicated to the creation of technologies and services that benefit older adults and caregivers.

The AGE-WELL National Impact Challenge aims to identify great new ideas for technology-based solutions that will improve the quality of life of older Canadians and/or their caregivers. The top 8 videos will be invited to participate in the finale at the AGE-WELL Conference in Vancouver, British Columbia.

Finalists will compete for over $100K in prizes.

 

 

Our great idea to help older Canadians

90% of older Canadians use email, and 2.2 billion people rely on it every day. It's a critical tool that reduces social isolation, fosters independence, and allows us all to participate in the digital world. 

But the volume of messages we receive is a problem. Email now poses one of the greatest online security risks older Canadians face as scammers send messages that try to trick us into giving up confidential information or use emails to spread viruses.

For the AGE-WELL National Impact Challenge, the experts at Gluu set out to solve these problems and reimagine a better email experience for older Canadians.

We find out on September 4th if we made it to the Top 8 and a chance to compete for $100k in prizes. Stay tuned. ?
