Age-Friendly Community Action Plan

The City of Vaughan is taking steps to create a more age-friendly community, where all residents can be active and engaged members of society at every stage of life.

As the senior population across Canadian communities continues to increase, it is more important than ever to support the health and well-being of older adults. The city of Vaughan is a growing municipality, expected to reach a population of approximately 500,000 by 2041. It is projected that older adults (55 years and older) will make up the largest portion of the population of Vaughan, representing more than 30 per cent of the total population by 2031.

Guided by the experiences, ideas and insight shared by the community, the City has drafted the Vaughan Age-Friendly Community Action Plan. The Plan has been shared with members of Vaughan Council at the Committee of the Whole (Working Session) on Wednesday, April 6.

Following the Committee of the Whole (Working Session), the plan will be presented to Council for approval at 1p.m. on Tuesday, April 26.

On behalf of the City’s Age-Friendly Project Team, we would like to sincerely thank you for participating in the development of the Vaughan Age-Friendly Community Action Plan. The voice of Vaughan’s citizens and older adult community has been vital to shaping the plan and we are very grateful for your time and dedication to making Vaughan a more age-friendly community.
