Seniors are an important part of our community fabric. Like many other world-class cities, our goal is to become an age-friendly community that is truly inclusive, accessible and supportive of citizens of all ages, abilities and backgrounds. We are committed to building a community which fosters a deep sense of belonging. We want to ensure our residents have access to opportunities and services that increase their quality of life.
