From the World Health Organization to municipal governments, there is a call for an age friendly society. Alberta Council on Aging centers all of its efforts on delivering age friendly publications and programs to the general public at low or no cost.

Ahead of its time, in 1997, the Alberta Council on Aging developed and trademarked a comprehensive program to help businesses and organizations make their operations age friendly. Senior Friendly™ is designed to help communities, businesses and organizations recognize the needs of seniors in order to provide optimum service.

We partner with communities to better reach our members and older persons across the province. Aging in community is highly valued by seniors, and Alberta Council on Aging is committed to bringing presentations and resources to your community at little or no cost to participants.
