The funding that was received was used to create the Age Friendly Elliot Lake Action Plan. The City of Elliot Lake partnered with the Northern Ontario School of Medicine for assisstance with the creation of the survey as well as distribution and data collection.
An Age Friendly Working Group was created with 3 volunteer members and a City of Elliot Lake staff member. Focus groups were held with service provders, organizations, businesses and heads of activity groups to gain information to create the community-based survey that encompassed the 8 Age Friendly domains. The survey was created and sent for ethics approval from Laurentian University's Ethics Reviw Board. Once approved, the survey was deployed out into the community (online and paper based in both official languages).
Data collected from the survey was analyzed and the Age Friendly Elliot Lake Action Plan was created. The Action Plan will be going to Elliot Lake's Municipal Council for approval. Once approved, implementation of the Action Plan will begin.
