Age-Friendly Program Description
Municipal Council adopted the community drive Age-Friendly Action Plan in June 2018. This 5-year guiding document identifies actions items that staff and volunteers will address based on priority (as indicated within the document). The AFC will meet semi-annually to monitor progress and adapt the course as necessary to account for grants, emerging opportunities etc. The main focus will be on programming, social inclusion and communications with some longer-term goal such as improving accessibility, and seeking transportation options.
