Age-Friendly Community Strategy and Action Plan

Grey County has developed an Age-Friendly Community (AFC) Strategy and Action Plan

The project expanded on policy and research initiatives undertaken by the County (i.e. Grey County Official Plan, Age-Friendly study by University of Guelph students, Grey Bruce Community Safety and Well-Being Plan, etc.),  creating a roadmap to guide the County and inform the work of local municipalities and other community partners. The Plan helps ensure decisions and actions reflect and respond to the needs of everyone; including youth, working-age, older adults, and people with disabilities. AFC planning creates a more inclusive environment for all individuals.

This strategy and action plan focuses on the World Health Organization’s (WHO) eight age-friendly community domains: outdoor spaces and public buildings, transportation, housing, respect and social inclusion, civic participation and employment, community and information, community support and health services, and social participation.
