Age Friendly Communities

Applications are not currently being accepted for this program.   

The Age-friendly Communities program assists communities in BC to support aging populations by developing and implementing policies and plans, undertaking projects that enable seniors to age in place, and facilitating the creation of age-friendly communities.

Since 2005, the provincial government has provided over $7 million to support the program. To date, over 150 communities in BC have completed projects or been approved for funding, including local governments and First Nation communities.

For all funded projects, it is expected that in-person activities, meetings or events meet physical distancing and other public health guidance in relation to COVID-19.  Extensions to project end dates and final report deadlines are available for any approved project impacted by COVID-19.
