The minimum time commitment required is three hours every three months.

Interested volunteers are asked to complete the Expression of Interest form, outlining how you feel you can contribute to the council, by November 8. Submissions should be sent by email to or mailed to:

Durham Council on Aging

The Council on Aging was established to guide the implementation of the Age-Friendly Durham Strategy and Action Plan over the next five years. The council will establish cross-sectorial partnerships that engage numerous stakeholders in the work of advancing age-friendliness. It will act as a springboard to connect with other community initiatives and consolidate efforts, in a way that breaks down silos, reduces duplication, and increases collaboration and knowledge transfer.

The Member-at-Large Expression of interest form and additional information about the Age-Friendly Durham Strategy and Action Plan is available on the Region of Durham’s website at
