Seniors, women, and youth


Maintaining a healthy, socially sustainable city is a priority for both Council and staff.

So it is important to give residents opportunities to interact with other members of their communities, and receive support and encouragement from community organizations and networks.

At the same time, community members need to enjoy safe, supportive, and healthy environments.

Programs that encourage inclusion and interaction

From recreational programming and networking for seniors, to anti-discrimination initiatives for youth, staff are working to ensure that all members of the communities that make up our city have a voice, have opportunities to engage with the city, and remain active and involved.
