Grey County is working to support frontline workers in essential services and health care as Ontario returns to remote learning due to the COVID-19 Pandemic.
Grey County is developing an Age-Friendly Community (AFC) Strategy and Action Plan
The project will build on recent 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.), to design a roadmap guiding the corporation and informing the work of local municipalities and other community partners to help ensure the decisions and actions reflect and respond to the needs of everyone; including youth, working-age, older adults, and people with disabilities. AFC planning aims to create a more inclusive environment for all individuals.
This strategy and action plan will focus 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.
