Communities where life expectancy is significantly higher than the global average all share some key characteristics when it comes to wellbeing. As we get better at identifying and learning more about these mysterious and extraordinary communities, one question arises: can they be replicated?

Gabriola Island, a small community on Canada’s west coast, is setting out to see what happens when they adopt these principles to develop a community-wide approach to caregiving. Meet local community members like Cecily , the 101 year old firecracker with an undeniable love for life, and Chloë , a Community Seniors Navigator who is passionate about her community. Watch the community come together to face the obstacles that threaten their quest of becoming recognized as one of the healthiest places on the planet.
