Age-Friendly Municipality

logo madaFounded in 2007 by the World Health Organization, the goal of the Age-Friendly Municipality (AFM) strategy is to promote active ageing by optimizing opportunities for health, participation and security in order to enhance the quality of life as people age. In practical terms, an age-friendly city adapts its structures and services to be accessible to, and inclusive of, older people. Active ageing depends on a variety of factors that surround individuals, families and communities. These include both material conditions as well as social factors.

An Age-friendly Municipality

  • recognizes that seniors have a wide range of capacities
  • anticipates and responds to age-related needs
  • respects the decisions and lifestyle choices of seniors
  • protects those who are more vulnerable
  • promotes the inclusion and contributions of seniors

Subscribing to the AFM strategy provides the City of Beaconsfield with a guide to adapting municipal policies, services and infrastructure to the reality and needs of an aging population. This approach aims to establish a Seniors Policy and to develop an action plan that allows seniors to age while remaining active in their community.
