Brantford and District Civic Centre Auditorium
79 Market Street South
After the last election I committed to create what I called at the time: "The Seniors Summit Series". Since November of 2014, I co-chaired the summits with the Grand River Council on Aging. This initiative was to bring to light to the pressing issues seniors are facing. Since our first meeting, we have organized eight separate community gatherings to identify their concerns and issues and work towards making Brantford, Brant, Six Nations of the Grand River, and Mississauga of the New Credit age-friendly communities.
After over two years of community consultations and analysis of data, the Grand River Council on Aging and I are pleased to announce that we are launching our finalized report entitled "Creating an Age-Friendly Community: Community Impact Report". The report includes our findings from the eight community summits that we have organized.
I am very grateful that I have had the pleasure to initiate and work on this exciting and rewarding community project. I am delighted with the Community Impact Report as it is the result of community members including all levels of government representatives working together to make meaningful changes to ensure that people of all ages are included in our community.
We are celebrating the launch of the report on May 26th at the Brantford and District Civic Centre Auditorium (79 Market Street South) at 10 AM. The council and I would be honoured if you joined us at this remarkable event.
If you are interested in attending I ask that you kindly contact Kaitlin at my constituency office by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org or calling 519-759-0361.

Wilfrid Laurier University’s Carnegie Building
73 George Street in Brantford
Read Lounge (CB100)
MPP Levac along with the Honourable Kevin Flynn, Minister of Labour, will host a roundtable discussion entitled “Women in the World of Work.” This roundtable will focus on addressing the gender wage gap and smashing the glass ceiling. The discussion will take place on May 24,2017 from 2-4 P.M in the Read Lounge (CB100) of Wilfrid Laurier University’s Carnegie Building.
Minister Flynn has been tasked with leading Ontario’s Gender Wage Gap Working Group. The roundtable will be an open forum to discuss what working women want and need. The impetus for this roundtable session came from the annual Chamber of Commerce breakfast in Brantford on February 24, 2017. At this breakfast, many women expressed the need to create change in our community on this issue. The session will continue this discussion by tackling the continuing obstacles for working women, such as pay equity and fair treatment.
As an active proponent of women’s rights and equality, MPP Levac knows that women make up an integral part of our economy and society, but on average still do not earn as much as men. He is committed to improving the working lives and conditions for Brant’s women, and will continue to build on steps others have taken to help close the gender wage gap.
The seating is limited to 35 participants. If you are interested in attending, please contact Chayce at (519) 759-0361.

Glenhyrst Art Gallery of Brant
20 Ava Road in Brantford
Glenhyrst Art Gallery of Brant is pleased to announce its Living Rooms exhibit featuring works by Amanda McCavour & Aidan Urquhart.
The works included in this exhibition speak directly to the assembly of space as being one of opposites, of dichotomies: public / private, interior / exterior, outside / inside. The result is a meaningful, idiosyncratic, and often humorous play on the spaces we inhabit. Moreover, it draws attention to the everyday, to the spaces we may take for granted, and allows up to see them in a new light.
The Exhibit will be on display at Glenhyrst Art Gallery of Brant from January 14 – March 12.
A Gala Reception will be held on Thursday, January 19, 2017 at 7 pm.
Admission to the gallery and the Gala Reception are free. All are welcome. For more information about this event, please call Glenhyrst Art Gallery at 519-756-5932 or email email@example.com.
