Age Friendly

Age Friendly

"By 2031, there will be approximately nine million seniors in Canada, and they will account for 25 percent of the total population" (Statistics Canada, 2005).

Age Friendly initiatives encourage active aging for all ages through optimizing health promoting activities, participation and security.  They adapt systems and structures to be inclusive and accessible for a wide range of needs and capacities.

BCHC supports supports facilitation, planning and implementation of Age Friendly Communities initiatives as well as administers the provincial Age Friendly Communities Recognition Award.
