The City of Edmonton has a Seniors Centres Plan (2011-2021) that provides direction on potential future capital requirements of existing seniors’ centres, recommendations to address seniors’ needs in areas of the city where seniors’ centres do not currently exist, and recommendations for operational improvements to seniors’ centres and services for older adults.

To support the objectives of the Seniors Centres Plan, an Edmonton Seniors Centres Strategy will be developed. The Strategy to outline a comprehensive approach to guide the City in achieving active aging outcomes through policy, programming, facilities and funding is necessary. The Edmonton Seniors Centres Strategy will also provide future direction to meet the changing and diverse needs of upcoming cohorts of seniors and assist with mitigating identified challenges and barriers.

What Is Healthy and Active Aging?

The eight determinants of health and active aging are: (1) economic, (2) social, (3) physical, (4) health-related, (5) behavioural, (6) personal, (7) physical (environment). In particular, we are looking for your ideas on how seniors’ centres can better support these determinants of active aging to support a high quality of life in our communities.

Seniors Centres of the Future

The Seniors Centres of the Future survey was released broadly via The Edmonton Insight Community, an inclusive and accessible online citizen panel made up of diverse Edmontonians who provide feedback on City policies, initiatives and issues.

The key purpose of the survey was to determine how people see seniors centres in Edmonton today and what people think seniors centres in Edmonton should look like in the future.
