Age-friendly Business Recognition Program

Age-friendly business is good business

Seniors are the fastest-growing age group in Canada and are healthier, better educated, and wealthier than previous generations. Today, seniors will generally retire with better health, live a longer life, and choose to consume services and products that make their life more enjoyable. For the Township of Langley, the number of residents over the age of 45 is growing faster than average. 

Age-friendly business recognition program

The age-friendly business recognition program acknowledges local businesses that make a commitment to age-friendly business practices and are committed to serving customers of all ages and abilities with dignity and respect.

To become an age-friendly recognized business, complete the online age-friendly business self-assessment form. Businesses that receive an average score of 2.5 or more will receive a certificate recognizing that they are aware and committed to being an age-friendly business.

If you need assistance with the self-assessment form, please email or call us at 604-533-6084. 

We would like to thank all the business that have been recognized for their continued efforts in making their business age-friendly, the Alzheimer’s Society of BC, and Union of British Columbia Municipalities (UBCM) age-friendly communities grant program for their support of this pilot program that took place in 2018 and 2019.

Age-friendly business funding sources

Businesses can take small steps now and benefit long-term by being ready to meet the needs of aging customers and build a loyal customer base. Options such as dedicated accessible parking stalls, entrance door ramp, aisle widening, accessible shelving, non-slip floor mats, lighting improvements, handrail installation, and so on. Use the age friendly business self-assessment form to help identify your current strengths and opportunities for becoming a more age-friendly business.
