Age-Friendly Community (AFC) Planning

The Age-Friendly Community (AFC) Planning Guide provides advice to municipalities on the development, implementation and evaluation of plans for senior-friendly communities which are socially and physically accessible and inclusive.

This guide:

  • Explains the characteristics of an AFT and how it can respond to the opportunities and challenges of Ontario’s aging population
  • Provides a ‘one-stop shop’ for a broad range of existing AFC resources
  • Recognizes that collecting information that reflects or captures the characteristics of your community as broadly as possible is critical to a successful AFC initiative
  • Offers those working on AFC initiatives a framework for making informed choices among several flexible community assessment tools that can be tailored and adaptable to local circumstances
