Thanks to fantastic support from Fraser Valley residents, the BC Generations Project’s pop-up assessment centre in Abbotsford has been a huge success. By the time we close our doors on March 15, almost 1,200 new participants will have visited our assessment centre. We recently welcomed BC’s Health Minister Michael de Jong to tour our facility and meet a project participant (with video).
