A Community Mapping Project created by the
Age Advantage Association of Nova Scotia


In 2017, five years since The Age Advantage Association first brought COGS students and volunteer seniors together to learn about and then create an on-line community asset map, the work continues. The vision has widened, the number of instructors and students from the Centre of Geographic Sciences involved has grown, and the volunteer groups mapping their County interests has ballooned.
