Age-Friendly Communities Strategy and Action Plan
The AFC Strategy and Action Plan will design a roadmap guiding the corporation to help ensure the decisions and actions reflect the needs of everyone, from youth to seniors and people with disabilities.
About the Strategy
The Age-Friendly Community Strategy and Action Plan expanded on policy and research initiatives undertaken by then County (Recolour Grey Official Plan, Age-Friendly Study by the University of Guelph, Grey Bruce Community Safety and Well-Being Plan etc.). This information formed 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.
