Age Friendly Edmonton

Age Friendly Edmonton is an initiative of the Edmonton Seniors Coordinating Council, supported by the City of Edmonton.


Age Friendly Edmonton (AFE) seeks to build a city that values, respects, and actively supports the well-being of older adults. In working towards this, AFE strives to ensure that:

  • Seniors are engaged, participating, and contributing to their communities
  • Seniors are safe and well in their home and communities
  • Seniors are respected and included
  • Seniors have access to the programs, services, and resources they need

We at Age Friendly Edmonton believe that age is a gift to our city. 

Age Friendly Edmonton includes four 'Action Hubs,' in which dedicated volunteers work on projects and push for policy changes supporting older adults. These Action Hubs include:

  • Reducing Ageism
  • Supporting Aging in Place
  • Responding to Diversity and Inclusion
  • Intergenerational Connections
