7. Age Friendly Abbotsford/AGM, Sue Federspiel

Oct 8, 2019, 10:00 AM – 12:00 PM

Abbotsford City Council endorsed embarking on an age-friendly strategy that will help Abbotsford meet the needs of its older residents, while providing a physical and social environment that works for all people. Council's corporate Strategic Plan (2015-2018) creates a vision for the City that supports diversity, including age, and sets the foundation to build towards Abbotsford being a Complete Community. In October 2014, to confirm Council’s commitment towards making Abbotsford an Age-Friendly community, a resolution was passed for Abbotsford to work towards becoming recognized by the Province and BC Healthy Communities as Age-Friendly. An Age-Friendly Abbotsford Work Group was formed to guide the process of community engagement, and work towards plan implementation.
