The Village of Warfield has received funding to help make our community more age-friendly. An age-friendly community is one where older adults can “age actively” – that is, to live in security, enjoy good health, and continue to participate fully in society.
And the good news is that becoming age-friendly not only improves quality of life for seniors, it also creates a more inclusive, safe and accessible community for everyone.
We Want To Hear From You
We want to hear from a range of residents and stakeholder groups to inform the development of the age-friendly plan. This includes seniors, but also senior service providers, care givers, the ‘next generation of seniors’ (people in their 30s, 40s, and 50s), and residents of all ages.
There are three ways to tell us how age-friendly Warfield is today and to share your ideas for becoming more age-friendly in the future:
1. Complete the survey by March 27th for a chance to win one of two $75 gift cards to Ferraro Foods.

More About The Project
Our age-friendly assessment and planning process will occur from February to June 2019 and will cover these World Health Organization age-friendly themes, which are used extensively by other communities and cities within and beyond Canada:
- Respect and social inclusion
- Community support and health services
- Outdoor spaces and buildings
- Social participation in arts/culture, recreation, leisure, learning, etc…
- Communication and information
- Civic participation and employment
Regional Connections: The City of Trail, City of Rossland and Village of Montrose have recently completed age-friendly assessments and action plans of their own, doing so through a joint planning process. The regional information and ideas gathered through their process will be considered through ours and used to develop our own community approach.
