New Brunswick’s Age-Friendly Community Recognition Program recognizes those municipalities and communities that have completed the first four steps based on the World Health Organization’s framework to become Age-Friendly:
- Secure official commitment to the Age-Friendly Community approach with a resolution from Municipal Council.
- Establish an Age-Friendly Advisory Committee.
- Conduct an age-friendly community assessment.
- Establish a comprehensive action plan.
These steps take significant time and effort. Congratulations to all the successful recipients of the Age-Friendly Recognition Award for their commitment and leadership in becoming an Age-Friendly Community!
This award has been presented since 2017 and more communities are being recognized each year. Click the badges on the map to learn more about what each community has accomplished in their journey toward becoming an age-friendly community. Plus, check out the featured Age-Friendly Community Resources.
We also applaud those communities that are working hard and are well on their way to becoming age-friendly. We hope this map will help communities to reach out to one another for encouragement and share resources along the journey.
