Seniors/Age-Friendly Community Committee
The purpose of the Orangeville Seniors/Age-Friendly Community Committee is to review, seek input, and make recommendations to Council on matters affecting the seniors of the Town of Orangeville.
|Age-Friendly Community Action Plan|
The Seniors Committee mandate is to establish lines of communication for seniors, provide an opportunity for seniors to bring forth concerns and to make constructive suggestions and be involved in the solution, determine issues affecting seniors as a whole, provide a service and a voice for seniors, and provide a focus for ideas to make Orangeville a welcome place for seniors to live.
The committee will also implement the Age-Friendly Community initiative and make recommendations to Council in this regard.
For your convenience the committee has produced an information brochure on Town services and links to other organizations. The brochure is available online or a copy is available at the Municipal Offices, 87 Broadway. The Committee also maintains a Senior Business Discount Directory which lists local businesses who provide a senior discount for their services and products. If you have any questions about the committee, please contact Darla Fraser at 519-941-0440 Ext. 5222 or [email protected].
