The tools and resources on the Age Friendly Communities website will help guide your community towards developing solutions to become more age friendly – in a way that best suits your community’s unique needs.

This age friendly community approach:  

  • uses a set of value-based principles to guide all decision making since a one-size-fits all approach often will not work
  • is built around three building blocks that will help you think more systematically and creatively about creating strong and supportive communities
  • places a strong importance on collaboration, active participation and community engagement, especially for older adults

Tools and resources available on this website include:

  • sector-based check-lists for assessing your community
  • reflective questions to stimulate discussion and identify goals
  • tips and strategies for creating age friendly communities
  • links to helpful age friendly community resources
  • examples of real-life strategies and solutions
