Age-Friendly Communities Outreach Program
The Government of Ontario funds the Age-Friendly Community (AFC) Outreach Initiative, a program of the Ministry for Seniors and Accessibility. The AFC Outreach Program is administered by the University of Waterloo, Queen's University, Huntington/Laurentian University, the Ontario Interdisciplinary Council for Aging and Health (OICAH), and the Seniors Health Knowledge Network (SHKN).
This program is designed to help communities, including recipients of Ontario’s AFC Planning Grant:
- increase awareness of age-friendly planning principles,
- share best practices,
- and start, continue, evaluate and improve on their AFC action plans.
