Surrey is an Age Friendly City

Surrey's growing community of seniors has an important role in shaping our city. Through our Age Friendly Strategy for Seniors, the City of Surrey is leading the way in becoming an age-friendly city where people enjoy lifelong activity and engagement.

Surrey’s Age Friendly Strategy for Seniors is a framework that ensures seniors, families and caregivers are supported through advocacy, policy, partnering and service delivery. 

For more information on Surrey’s Age Friendly Strategy for Seniors, including how you, your business or organization can partner with the City of Surrey to implement programs and strategies that support an age-friendly community, email seniors@surrey.ca

 

Healthy and Active Aging

The Age Friendly Strategy focuses on four key outcomes:

Seniors are supported to be active and engaged in their community and engagement practices are in place to prevent isolation.

Seniors have a range of safe, convenient and, accessible affordable transportation options.

Seniors have access to affordable and appropriate housing and support necessary to remain as independent as possible.

Public places, outdoor spaces and buildings are designed to be welcoming, safe and accessible.
