Age-Friendly Business/Organization Guide and Award Program

The Age-Friendly Business/Organi​zation Award Program instruction brochure helps business owners assess if their business is designed to serve everyone.  An Age-Friendly business/organization is people-friendly— appealing to all ages and abilities. As an integral part of the community, businesses/ organizations can be key to making a community more livable and engaged.

This p​rogram provides guidance, resources and tools to enable business owners to identify, promot​e and be recognized for implementing age-friendly practices. As our population ages, it makes viable business sense to adapt to meet the changing needs of communities as it represents a major trend for investment and spending. 

The program wishes to acknowledge those who are working towards implementing Age-Friendly practices and who have demonstrated a willingness to continually maintain and improve by instituting and promoting best practices for serving individuals of all ages and abilities.

If you are implementing Age-Friendly practices, or if you are planning to make changes, we want to hear about it.  The 2024 Age-Friendly Business Recognition Program will be launched soon!
