The purpose of Sage's Directory of Senior Services is to provide seniors, caregivers and senior-serving professionals with a comprehensive guide to relevant services and resources in Edmonton and surrounding areas.
Listings are only included for services or information directly relevant to seniors.
Advertising is a critical part of our funding model and how the Directory is provided for free to the community.
Sage determines categories based on the needs of the senior population. These may change year to year to reflect evolving needs and/or improve clarity for the reader. In addition to essential numbers and helpful tools and checklists, the Directory is divided into Seniors Services and Seniors Housing with categories in each of these sections.

Citizenship and Immigrant Services

The priority of the listings is to concisely give readers enough information to narrow their search. Listing information submitted will be edited as required for length and clarity.
I have listed in the Directory before, why do I have to fill out a Listing Submission Form this year? Can't you just use my old listing?
Sage conducted an evaluation of the Directory which determined that Listing Information needs to be more consistent and streamlined to increase overall usability and sustainability. As a result, Service Listings will be reduced to a short description (under 500 characters and limited lines as determined) and basic contact information (as per the submission form).
Ideally a Directory listing has enough information that the reader can reach out for more information. An organization that wants to feature more information can do so in a purchased ad.
Sage recognizes that organizations may have included more information in their listing in the past. We appreciate your cooperation in moving towards a more sustainable approach to the listing collection process and the information provided.
