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.

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.
