Request a Grant Writer

Grants to Newfoundland and Labrador government agencies and indigenous governments for projects to benefit eligible residents. Funding is intended to create an action strategy at a local or regional level. Funding is also intended for projects designed to enable people of all ages to actively age in a secure and accessible environment from both a physical and social perspective.

Active aging, as a lifelong process, supports seniors of today and tomorrow. An age-friendly community is one where the physical and social environments enable people to live in a secure setting, enjoy health and participate in society regardless of age. The Age-Friendly Newfoundland and Labrador Communities Program builds upon the age-friendly communities’ global movement initiated by the World Health Organization (WHO) and endorsed by the Public Health Agency of Canada (PHAC). This movement aims to meet the demands of the world’s aging population/demographic shift by encouraging the establishment of policies, services, and structures that promote healthy aging and wellness across the lifespan.

An age-friendly community is a community where the policies, services, and physical spaces are designed to enable people of all ages to actively age in a secure and accessible environment from both a physical and social perspective.

Age-Friendly Community Pillars and Milestones:

The WHO has identified eight key pillars/domains of community life required to become truly age-friendly. These include:

  • Outdoor Spaces and Buildings
  • Transportation
  • Housing
  • Respect and Social Inclusion
  • Social Participation
  • Communication and Information
  • Civic Participation and Employment Opportunities
  • Community Support and Health Services
