Committed To Becoming More Age-Friendly
Calgary’s senior population is growing and by 2036, it’s estimated that nearly one in five Calgarians will be a senior.
Through collaboration with older adult community members, other levels of government, and members of the health, post-secondary, non-profit, and private sectors, a community-wide strategy was created to prepare for Calgary’s aging population.
Age-Friendly Calgary is a collaborative approach to creating an age-friendly city. It is based on our Seniors Age-Friendly Strategy and Implementation Plan 2015 – 2018 which has targets six priority areas:
• Access to information and services
• Community support and health
• Participation and inclusion
• Prevention of and response to elder abuse
• Transportation and mobility
The City of Calgary is working with community members, seniors advocates and senior serving industry members through a variety of action teams focused on making sure Calgary is an age-friendly city.
