Durham Region launches Age-Friendly Durham Community Survey

WHITBY, ON July 26, 2016

The Regional Municipality of Durham has launched its Age-Friendly Durham community survey as part of a number of consultation activities being undertaken to develop an age-friendly community strategy and action plan for Durham Region.

WHEN:

The survey will be available to complete until Sept. 30.

WHERE:

Older adults (age 55 and up), community organizations and caregivers in Durham Region’s eight local area municipalities are invited to participate in the online survey, available at www.durham.ca/AgeFriendly. Paper copies of the survey are also available by contacting AgeFriendly@durham.ca, or at various drop box locations throughout the region. Please visit the Age-Friendly Durham webpage for a full listing.

WHY:

The Regional Municipality of Durham will gather feedback from the survey on key Regional services, within the context of the World Health Organization age-friendly planning framework. Other consultation activities include focus groups, a municipal roundtable discussion and a community forum at Deer Creek Golf & Banquet Facility on Sept. 30.

NOTE:

In June 2015, The Regional Municipality of Durham received provincial funding through Ontario’s Age-Friendly Community Planning Grant Program to support the development of a sustainable, collaborative long-term strategy to meet the needs of Durham’s aging population.
