Orangeville's Age-Friendly Initiative
An age-friendly community is one that is inclusive, accessible and promotes active aging.
The Orangeville Seniors/Age-Friendly Community Committee and the Orangeville Public Library have partnered to provide leadership, administration and support for an age-friendly action plan for the Town of Orangeville. A Sub-Committee was formed to help create a three-year plan that will improve the quality of life for seniors in Orangeville in eight categories established by the World Health Organization. The Town of Orangeville's Age-Friendly Community Action Plan was received by Council in December 2016 with the goal of joining the World Health Organization's (WHO) Global Network of Age Friendly Cities and Communities.
The Age-Friendly vision for Orangeville is:
"A vibrant, safe community where we can all age with dignity, respect and purpose."
The Orangeville Seniors/Age-Friendly Community Committee believes that promoting the age-friendly initiative and action plan will benefit people of all ages and abilities.
