Age-Friendly Framework

The County of Simcoe (the County), in support of its aging population, has chosen to develop an Age-Friendly Community framework for the communities that reside within its geographical area.

Success will depend on collaboration and coordination among many partners and stakeholders within Simcoe County. To better understand the issues related to aging, we would like to invite seniors to become involved in the consultation process.

How You Can Get Involved:

Two levels of involvement are highlighted below. These criteria are intended to guide the planning process by involving seniors along the way towards developing the County's Age-Friendly Community framework.

You can become involved by selecting one of the following levels*:

Level 1 – Become a member of the Age-Friendly Community Project Steering Committee

As the first step towards becoming an Age-Friendly Community, the County is forming an Age-Friendly Community Project Steering Committee whose responsibilities will be to define the guiding principles, provide strategic direction and guidance to support the project.

Level 2 – Join in the Public Consultation Process

The purpose primarily is to hold focus group meetings in your communities to listen and gather information.  If you would like us to come out to meet with your group, please contact us.
