Age-Friendly Community Planning Grant Successful!
Andrea Strawson, Project Manager
The Municipality of Shuniah has been successful and received the Age-Friendly Community Planning Grant for $25,000 from the Ministry of Ontario. Mayor, Council and Municipal Management are excited to embark on this new initiative to create a more inclusive and supportive community. Our Municipality aims to understand and respond to the perspectives and needs of older adults and seniors living in Shuniah to create a more age-friendly community that enables seniors to contribute to all aspects of life. This will be accomplished through the completion of a custom needs assessment that will identify the gaps in and opportunities for improving our community’s age friendliness. The priorities determined through the needs assessment will then inform a comprehensive action plan.
Age Friendly Steering Committee Meetings will occur on the first Wednesday of every month from 1 to 2:30 pm. Anyone interested in the initiative is welcome to join.
