Age-friendly Peterborough

Our communities are aging. In Peterborough, individuals over the age of 65 account for over 20% of our regional population. The shift towards an older population will have profound implications for individuals, families, and communities. With this shift also comes opportunity for community building and social development.

The Age-friendly Peterborough Community Action Plan identifies a clear path forward to enhance programs, services, and infrastructure for older adults in the Peterborough region; including the City and County of Peterborough, and the Curve Lake and Hiawatha First Nations.

The Plan identifies four goals:

  • Older adults' basic needs are met
  • Older adults are able to get around the community
  • Older adults are supported to build and maintain relationships
  • Older adults have the opportunity to learn, grow, and contribute
