Background

In May 2013, Council passed resolutions toward its commitment to becoming an Age-friendly Community, and designated the Seniors Advisory Committee (SAC) as the Age-friendly Advisory Steering Committee. Building on an existing age-friendly evaluation in 2010 and other policies, programs and practices, key issues and opportunities were identified through workshops that targeted stakeholders, partner agencies, members of SAC and Youth Advisory Committee, and the general public. The information and ideas gathered from the workshops served as the foundation for the development of the Age-friendly Strategy.
