Creating an Age Friendly Community

Consultation has concluded

Help us create an age-friendly community that is supportive and inviting for citizens of all ages, abilities and backgrounds!

Our goal is to identify and incorporate age-friendly community policies, practices, features, programs, and initiatives required to meet the existing and future needs of older adults in Dufferin County.

Similar to many communities across Ontario, the proportion of older adults in Dufferin County has been increasing significantly over the past decade and is expected to continue at a rapid pace over the next decade, creating increased demand for older adults' programs and services. We want to ensure that older adults in Dufferin County are appropriately recognized and have access to the programs and services they require to stay active, healthy, and engaged in the local community.

The Age Friendly Community Needs Assessment and Strategic Action Plan is intended to align with the eight dimensions (below) of an age-friendly community, as defined by the World Health Organization.
