"Individuals and organizations in communities across Ontario are working together to create age-friendly communities (AFcs). Accessible, inclusive, age-friendly social and physical environments, services and programs are making a difference in the everyday lives of older adults. municipalities have also taken important steps. they are developing community profiles, gathering information about existing services and programs in communities, establishing advisory committees and consulting with older adults. they are also incorporating age-friendly principles into planning, setting local priorities and developing age-friendly action plans. this guide highlights several of these local campaigns and partnerships that have brought together the energies and talents of champions and local residents"--Page 2.
