Age-friendly Alberta

In the next 10 years, the number of seniors is going to increase by more than 50%. By 2031, it is projected that there will be more than 923,000 seniors – meaning about 1 in 5 Albertans will be a senior. This will affect the way we build infrastructure, the way we get around, and even the way we shop for goods and services. That's why now is a great time for us to make our communities more age-friendly.

Age-friendly communities promote healthy and active aging. People in age-friendly communities are supported in maintaining their independence and have access to the community supports and services they require.

  • Each Alberta community is unique and needs to take its own path in becoming age-friendly.

Whether you are an individual, community leader or organization interested in helping your community to become more age-friendly, the information provided here will provide you with the tools and resources necessary to help you support your community in becoming more age-friendly.
