The Southern Georgian Bay Chamber of Commerce is participating as a member on the Age-Friendly Community Project Steering Committee.
From the World Health Organization (WHO) to our municipal government, there is a call for an age-friendly society. The County of Simcoe recognizes the Age-Friendly Community (AFC) concept as an initiative that falls within their mandate and, in support of our aging population, has chosen to develop a framework for the communities that reside within its geographical area. Developing a framework will help our community stakeholders identify, plan and address needs and priorities related to older adults in our area.
Please visit the following website link for more information on the progress and commitment to this point in making your community age-friendly: http://www.simcoe.ca/dpt/ltc/age-friendly
