Elliot Lake, City of

The funding will be used to develop an Age Friendly Action Plan for the City of Elliot Lake.

Focus groups that represent each of the 8 Age Friendly themes identified by the World Health Organization will be created in order to gain information to create a community based survey. As well, public consultations will take place to keep the community involved in the creation of the Age Friendly Action Plan.

Once data is compiled from the survey priorities can be set, as well as short, medium and long term goals for the Age Friendly Action Plan. Once the Action Plan is created, the goal is to implement it and keep improving upon it in order to become designated as an Age Friendly Community.

It is important to note that Age Friendly Elliot Lake is a person’s whole lifecycle, meaning it is focused on all ages within the community
