Age-friendly business initiative

Age-friendly Business is Good Business

Seniors are the fastest-growing age group in Canada and are healthier, better educated, and wealthier than previous generations. In a community where 37% of the population is aged 50 plus, businesses can take small steps to make a big difference in meeting the needs of aging customers and building a loyal customer base.

Age-friendly Business Recognition Program

The Age-friendly Business Recognition Program acknowledges local businesses that have made a commitment to age-friendly business practices.
