Age Friendly Edmonton™ is an initiative to build a city that values, respects and actively supports the well-being of seniors.
An age friendly city is an inclusive place where age is not a barrier to access services, programs, businesses or facilities. Creating an age friendly city helps us all.
Co-led by the City of Edmonton and the Edmonton Seniors Coordinating Council, Age Friendly Edmonton™ is a partnership of organizations committed to local action.
To achieve our vision that “Edmonton is a community that values, respects and actively supports the safety, diversity and wellbeing of seniors”, we strive for impact in the following areas:
- Seniors are engaged, participating, and contributing to their communities
- Seniors are safe and well in their homes and communities
- Seniors are respected and included
- Seniors have access to the programs, services, and resources they need
