Age-Friendly Community Planning Outreach Initiative: Project Background

The  Ontario Seniors' Secretariat has partnered with the University of Waterloo, the Ontario Interdisciplinary Council for Aging and Health (OICAH) and the Seniors Health Knowledge Network (SHKN) to administer a two-year Age-Friendly Community (AFC) Planning Outreach Initiative.This initiative is designed to help communities, including AFC Planning Grant recipients:
  • Increase awareness of age-friendly planning principles
  • Share best practices
  • Start, continue, evaluate and improve on their AFC action plans. 
The AFC Outreach Initiative builds on and complements the  AFC Planning Guide  and the  AFC Planning Grant Program.

Over the next two years, the Initiative will help develop partnerships across Ontario that support community-based age-friendly projects; develop and distribute AFC educational resources; and, create a provincial AFC knowledge exchange network.
