LET'S MAKE GROWING OLDER A POSITIVE EXPERIENCE, FOR EVERYONE

Age Friendly Edmonton is starting a conversation about growing older in Edmonton. What does healthy and happy aging look like to you? 

If you're an older Edmontonian 55+, we want to hear from you. Tell us about your experiences growing older in Edmonton: the joys, the challenges, and what you'd like to see to build an Age Friendly Edmonton.

 

To participate, simply submit a photo of yourself and answer a few questions using our  web form . Please note you need to sign in to your Google account to access the form. If you don't have a Google account, you can easily create one  here .

 

As a thanks for participating, we're offering participants a $5 Tim Horton’s gift card. We have a limited number of gift cards available on a first come, first served basis.

DIVERSITY COMMITTMENT

We are committed to celebrating diversity and making Edmonton a place for all people to enjoy the gift of older age. We are dedicated to making space for Indigenous, Black, Immigrant, Refugee, and Newcomer seniors to share what growing older means to them. 

 
 

Let's stop ageism

Our Age Friendly Edmonton team created an infographic to explain ageism--discrimination based on age--and why it's important we stop it. Scroll down for more information.

Embracing growing older, together

Older adults have much to offer through their life experience. We all benefit when older adults are respected, included, and supported. Let's expand the narrative around aging, together to build a more inclusive Edmonton.
