Building on the successes of the first award-winning age-friendly plan, Hamilton’s Plan for an Age-Friendly Community (2021-2026) continues to move the City forward in its commitment to being an age-friendly community by addressing current and future needs and priorities of seniors. New to Hamilton’s plan is the inclusion of dementia-friendly recommendations, the first of its kind in Ontario.
Hamilton’s Age-Friendly Plan was developed by the City in partnership with the Hamilton Council on Aging and the Seniors Advisory Committee, and in consultation with seniors across the community.
