About Age-friendly Saskatoon Initiative: 

Age-friendly Saskatoon Initiative, is a multiyear project aimed at establishing Saskatoon as an “age-friendly” community where older adults can lead healthy independent lives and are active and engaged members of the community. We consulted with over 500 older adults about their experiences growing older in Saskatoon and published reports with recommendations. 
Significant work has been underway in talking with the City of Saskatoon, the Saskatoon Health Region, the Government of Saskatchewan and  multiple organizations on implementing the actions recommended.
