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.

A Better Burlington began in 2006 after my neighbours said they felt left out of city decisions, learning about them only after they’d been made.

As journalist for 22 years, I thought “I can do something about that” and a website and newsletter were born. They’ve taken various forms and names over the years, but the intent remains: To let you know what’s happening at City Hall before decisions are made, so you can influence outcomes for A Better Burlington.

The best decisions are made when elected representatives tap the wisdom of our community members, and welcome many different perspectives.This site allows residents to comment and debate with each other; our Commenting Guidelines established in 2016 aim to keep debate respectful.
