Seniors

As the population ages, our City is home to more and more seniors. We need to plan for that future:

  • Accessibility failures are going to become more and more prominent every year. [See Accessibility.]
  • Not all seniors can drive. They have particular need of good public transit [see Public Transit], compact, walkable neighbourhoods [see Real Neighbourhoods, Snow Clearing and Sidewalk Clearing], and local green space [see Green Space, Parks, and Access to Nature].
  • Affordable housing raises particular problems for seniors, many of whom live on a fixed income or have special accessibility or transportation needs. [See Affordable Housing].
