The Age-Friendly Steering Committee is pleased to be able to provide the Municipality of Port Hope with the Age-Friendly Community Action Plan. The document is the result of the contributions of many, including the participation of residents in a community survey, and those who joined engaging discussion groups.

Throughout the process, there was strong support for ‘Age-Friendly’ planning - feedback was constructive and provided in a spirit of contributing to positive changes to the community.

The Committee would like to acknowledge the Department of Parks, Recreation and Culture for taking the lead on this initiative, and to Council for its support. The collective good-will to continue to make improvements in actions and policies will enhance the quality of life for all ages. A conscious effort was made throughout the process to focus on actions that we believed were doable and affordable. However, resident concerns that require significant investment, or are outside the Municipality’s ability to control, have also been noted.

We view this assignment as the beginning – of an exciting journey and one that will continue to make the Municipality of Port Hope more age-friendly.
