2016 Community Needs Assessment Report - Executive Summary


About An Age-Friendly Simcoe County

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.  

Two levels of involvement and contact information are highlighted in 'How to Become Involved'. These criteria are intended to guide the planning process by involving seniors along the way towards developing the County's Age-Friendly Community framework.

The County of Simcoe hosted Age-Friendly Public Consultations this year in Alliston at the Nottawasaga Inn, Collingwood at Sunset Manor, Orillia at the Orillia Legion and in Penetanguishene at Georgian Village.  For more information please click on the following link:  Press Release - Age-Friendly Public Consultations
