Interactive Maps

The interactive maps showcase the age-friendly community initiatives (AFCIs) and activities being implemented across Ontario. The maps are updated on a regular basis and include information about current AFCIs, age-friendly activities across the eight domains, and organizations/agencies related to age-friendly principles. The maps were designed to help spread promising practices and create opportunities for collaboration.

We have used the Ontario AFC website, online profiles of other age-friendly communities, and the interactive maps to conduct environmental scans for various planning activities. These resources are invaluable!” – An Ontario AFCI Lead
