As a partnership between the Edmonton Seniors Coordinating Council and the City of Edmonton, the Age Friendly Edmonton (AFE) initiative is building a city that’s happier, safer and more interesting for everyone of all ages. A dedicated group of volunteers sits on AFE’s Leadership Table and Action Hubs — providing strategic direction and project support in four priority areas:
- Supporting Aging in Place
- Encouraging Intergenerational Connections
- Responding to Diversity
Initiative activities respond to identified community needs, and aim to impact the following:
- Increased knowledge or awareness
- Improved program or service delivery
- A change to policy or systems.
Edmonton is an age-friendly city that recognizes the diverse contributions and needs of seniors, and actively supports their inclusion, engagement, and well-being
We raise awareness about age-friendly ideas and bring people together to create opportunities that enhance the aging experience for our communities.
