Have your Say: Age Friendly Hamilton 2020-2025

On behalf of the Age Friendly Collaborative Governance Committee- the Hamilton Council on Aging, City of Hamilton & Senior’s Advisory Committee, we would like to thank everyone who came out and supported the 2019 Age Friendly Hamilton Forum (Apr. 2, Michelangelo’s)!

The 2019 Age Friendly Hamilton Forum launched community consultation for Hamilton’s next Age Friendly Plan (2020-2025.) Thank you to the over 300 seniors who attended to “Have your Say”, 60 volunteer facilitators, special guests & to Susan Goodman for guiding this session. We were impressed by the honest and thoughtful feedback & ideas that we heard at this session to address the needs of seniors in our community!

Public Consultation for Hamilton’s next Age Friendly Plan will be taking place until September 2019. We are reaching out to older adults and key stakeholders in greater Hamilton to learn about your experiences, challenges, solutions & ideas to make Hamilton the “best place to age successfully.”
