Port Moody’s population, similar to many other parts of BC and Canada, is aging. In order to meet the needs of our aging population, we need to make sure there are accessible services and programs in place. We are working with our Seniors Focus Committee to improve our services.

Port Moody's Age-Friendly Plan

In September 2020, Council endorsed Port Moody’s Age-Friendly Assessment and Action Plan to guide our city in becoming an age-friendly community – a place where older people can lead active lifestyles, live in security, enjoy good health, and continue to participate fully in society.

Through the research and public engagement undertaken as part of the Age-Friendly Assessment and Action Plan, 52 recommended actions were developed to ensure Port Moody has the necessary physical and social infrastructure in place for an aging community. These recommended actions focus on the eight themes established by the World Health Organization to evaluate a municipality’s age-friendliness:

  • outdoor spaces and buildings
  • transportation
  • housing
  • respect and social inclusion
  • social participation
  • communication and information
  • civic participation and employment
  • community support and health services

 Staff will be reporting back with an Implementation Plan in 2021.
