We believe the community is enhanced by the wisdom, experience and participation of older adults.
Hamilton’s population is aging.
The City of Hamilton is committed to being prepared for our aging population and is working alongside the Hamilton Council on Aging and community stakeholders on a plan for an Age-Friendly Hamilton. This plan is set to be released in late 2014.
We are seeking your input to ensure that this plan is a true reflection of our community and the needs of older adults in Hamilton.

The Hamilton Council on Aging (HCoA) exists to educate, advocate and improve life for older adults through a collaborative network of individuals and organizations.
HCoA is a senior-driven initiative that was founded by a group of concerned citizens in the community.
HCoA is a non-profit, charitable organization dedicated to enhancing the quality of life of all seniors in Hamilton.
Our strength is in our membership. A volunteer Board of Directors, subcommittees, as well as HCoA staff, volunteers and community partners work together to support current projects and community initiatives.
