Description

In anticipation of the growing aging demographic, the County of Simcoe is pleased to introduce its new Age-Friendly Business/Organization Guide and Award Program to encourage regional businesses to implement age-friendly strategies and to recognize those showing leadership in creating welcoming environments for older adults.

All business sector environments play vital roles in meeting the needs and demands of everyone. The Age-Friendly Business Guide is meant to increase awareness of the County’s aging population and to help businesses or organizations evaluate their business environment and service delivery. The program provides a guide, resources and assessment tools to help adapt to our aging population.

The recognition component awards businesses or organizations who take action to become more age-friendly by participating in doing an age-friendly self-assessment and implementing age-friendly goals and strategies. For more information and to apply online, visit www.simcoe.ca/age-friendly

First 10 businesses to apply will receive a free coffee break and County swag for their staff.
