We want to ensure that current and future Edmontonians aged 55+ have access to diverse and inclusive programs, services and activities to support healthy aging and that the City uses resources to effectively support these goals. 

Approach to Seniors Services: A Framework to Support Seniors in Edmonton Now and into the Future

To better understand and plan for future changes that will affect healthy aging in Edmonton, this project will:

  • Focus on the needs of seniors and how seniors services can help address those needs,
  • Learn about the determinants of healthy aging, and programs and services that help seniors to age well at home and in their community, 
    Help develop and apply learnings from leading practice and insights such as a sector mapping process, strategic foresight, and recent seniors projects
  • Include a community engagement process with key stakeholders throughout the project

The two phases of this project include:

Phase 1
  • Will include assessment of the current state of programs, services and activities; clarification on the City’s role, and identifying future enhancements to supporting healthy aging
Phase 2
  • Includes discussions around existing and potential role(s) of seniors serving organizations with healthy aging services and programs, clarification of the City’s mandate with seniors, and update the City’s funding model to align with the strategic directions identified in phase 1
