2. Develop a baseline assessment of the age-friendliness of the city under eight domains;

  • outdoor spaces and buildings,
  • transportation,
  • housing,
  • social participation,
  • respect and social inclusion,
  • civic participation and employment,
  • communication and information,
  • community support and health services.

3. Develop a 3-year city-wide action plan
