In 2014, FADOQ created the Silver Button movement to raise awareness across the province for the cause it has championed for nearly 50 years: preserving and improving the quality life for citizens over the age of 50.
The movement has continued to grow over the years. Today, more than 100,000 people and hundreds of municipalities have joined this cause, which focuses on the seniors of today and of tomorrow—in short, all of us!
Why wait to be happy?
This year, the theme for the Silver Button campaign is “Why wait to be happy?”, which demonstrates how good quality of life for everyone over the age of 50 is the gateway to happiness. FADOQ contributes to this well-being directly through its activities and calls on all citizens to do the same in pursuit of this ultimate goal.
FADOQ has more than 500,000 members and nearly 17,000 volunteers, with more than 730 active clubs within the 16 regional groups across the province. Its reach is considerable, yet the support and commitment of every citizen is required to make our society a safe and healthy place; a society where all members play an active role and fully benefit from life, including those over the age of 50.
By participating in the Silver Button campaign, we commit to fostering the happiness of seniors in our area through our actions. Every company activity, even in the simplest, is a step in the right direction.
So, what are you waiting for?
Let’s wear the Silver Button with pride and make Québec a wonderful place to live at any age!
