Grey County is developing an Age-Friendly Community Strategy and Action Plan

View Age-Friendly Community Strategy and Action Plan

 


We want Grey County to be inclusive and welcoming to people of all ages and abilities. As part of Recolour Grey, we recently partnered with students from the University of Guelph to look at policies that better support youth and older adults.

For this study, students reviewed findings from other communities and reached out to the community for feedback. The study was endorsed by Grey County Council in the spring of 2017 and findings will be included in the next update of the official plan.
