Age Friendly London Network

The City of London supports multiple initiatives and resources to enhance seniors’ lived experience in our community.  

In 2010, the City of London became the first city in Canada to join the World Health Organization (WHO) Global Network of Age Friendly Cities.

The Age Friendly London Network is made up of over 100 volunteer older adults, caregivers, service providers and anyone with an interest in aging.  The Network is responsible for implementing strategies that make London a more age friendly city and support Londoners as they age.

The Network is comprised of 8 Working Groups who are implementing the Plan's action steps.
