Age-Friendly Assessment

In Spring 2016 the Township conducted an age-friendly assessment to ensure older adults in the community are supported to live active, socially engaged, and independent lives. The assessment will provide age-friendly goals, objectives and policies for the review of Esquimalt’s Official Community Plan.

In total 328 people participated in the assessment which was funded by UBCM’s Seniors’ Housing & Support Initiative.

The assessment included:

  • establishing an advisory group consisting of community partners;
  • hosting a community workshop; 
  • conducting several focus groups; and
  • collecting surveys from community members.
