Have your say: Burlington’s Active Aging Plan

Active Aging Plan LogoTake the survey

City staff are gathering feedback on a plan to keep older adults involved and active in the community. If you’re a resident 55 years of age or older, or you support someone who is, we’d like to hear about your needs and perspectives around leisure, transportation, civic participation, city communications, respect and social inclusion.

The city welcomes all perspectives regardless of background, ability, level of activity or mobility. We encourage families, friends or caregivers of seniors who live alone or are isolated to help these individuals complete the survey so that their voice can be heard. Paper surveys are also available at city recreation centres, pools and libraries.

I was inspired to seek public office because I believe, like so many of you, “I can do something about that” on the issues we face. As councilor, my role is to take a stand on what’s best for residents and go to bat for it. Pushback is inevitable from those who don’t have the community’s interests at heart. I will stand with you and for you, to achieve the best interests of our city, without caving to unacceptable compromise in the name of consensus.

What's your take?
