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.
