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.
