Seniors

Calabogie 55+ Club

The Calabogie 55+ Club is chartered by, and affiliated with, the United Senior Citizens of Ontario (USCO). We are an active social club with 159 members that meets on the last Thursday of each month. These meetings are dinner meetings and are either catered, potluck or held at local restaurants in Calabogie.

Our club is what we make of it - not more, not less. For some, it is a nice venue to meet friends periodically, and socialise. For others, it is the catalyst for activities of interest, and for community engagement.
 

Membership is open to any person 55 years of age and over and a resident or ex-resident of the Townhsip of Greater Madawaska or fringe areas. A member's spouse who has not reached the age of 55 may also join as an associate member. Annual membership fee is $13.00.

Age Friendly Community Plan

In June of 2016 Council approved the Greater Madawaska Age Friendly Community Plan. The Plan was developed with the help of a Steering Committee comprised of representatives from seniors interest groups and service organizations from throughout the Municipality. 

Ontario Age-Friendly Communities Network Exchange

An age-friendly community (AFC) is a community where policies, services and physical spaces are designed to enable people of all ages to live in a secure and accessible physical and social environment. AFCs contribute to good health and allow people to continue to participate fully in society throughout their lifetime. The Ontario Seniors’ Secretariat of the Government of Ontario is helping to implement AFCs across the province through its Action Plan for Seniors and the Finding the Right Fit AFC Planning Guide and the AFC Planning Grant Program. 

The AFC Planning Outreach Initiative builds on these initiatives.  It was established by the Ontario Seniors’ Secretariat to offer assistance to Ontario communities in the planning process. This project includes the development of partnerships, web resources, and the creation of a network for knowledge exchange across Ontario.
