Mission Statement

The Age-Friendly and Seniors Advisory Committee accepts the Age Friendly City concept as defined by the World Health Organization to be:
"In an age-friendly community, policies, services and structures related to the physical and social environment are designed to support and enable older people to 'age actively' - that is, to live in security, enjoy good health and continue to participate fully in society."

Public and commercial settings and services are made accessible to accommodate varying levels of ability.

Age-friendly service providers, public officials, community leaders, faith leaders and business people:

  • Recognize the great diversity among older persons,
  • Promote their inclusion and contribution in all areas of community life,
  • Respect their decisions and lifestyle choices,
  • Anticipate and respond flexibly to age-related needs and preferences.
