Over the next two decades the number of seniors in Toronto will more than double. To prepare for this, the City adopted its first age-friendly plan – the Toronto Seniors Strategy – in 2013. With 86 of the original 91 recommendations now implemented, the City is working with the older Torontonians, caregivers, agencies and other orders of government to co-create the next version – “2.0”.
As we prepare the strategy’s next phase, City staff would like to drop in on existing meetings in the community to talk about how the City and its partners can make Toronto more age-friendly. This community engagement phase will continue until the end of 2016.
If you are interested in having City staff come to one of your upcoming community meetings, please contact the Project Lead, Andrea Austen at firstname.lastname@example.org or 416-392-5140.
