Age Friendly

Our partnership with Elders in Action (EIA) is an excellent example of how focused community development and investment pays long-term dividends for everyone in the district. The Age-Friendly Campaigns (AFCs) trained local senior volunteers to provide feedback to businesses on making their customer service and facilities more elder-friendly and accessible. For EIA, this proved a useful way to pilot a new approach to expanding their programs across the city, as well as connecting seniors with sustainability concepts. For Lloyd EcoDistrict it was a mutually beneficial method of engaging two key demographics in the district: seniors, who make up 25% of our resident population, and the businesses who serve them. Our vision of a sustainable living and working district includes an engaged, empowered resident population with connections to their local businesses; the AFCs are making that happen. All of this continues to pay off for the EcoDistrict by helping us develop stronger relationships within the district that support a platform for future engagement within our key performance areas.

The Age-Friendly Campaign was brought to the Lloyd District through a partnership between: Lloyd EcoDistrict, Elders in Action, Go LloydLloyd Center and the Lloyd District Community Association.

A special thank you to our Age-Friendly businesses!
