The Older Adult Plan 2015-2018 will be presented 
for approval to the Community and Protective 
Services Committee on October 15, 2015 and to 
City Council on October 28, 2015.

The OAP 2015-2018 retains the vision and long-term 

goals that were adopted as part of the OAP 2012-2014 
and commits to 51 actions, organized under the same 
eight age-friendly strategic areas:
·        Outdoor Spaces and City Buildings
·        Transportation
·        Housing
·        Communication and Information
·        Social, Recreational, and Cultural Participation
·        Civic Participation and Volunteering
·        Community Supports and Health Services
·        Respect and Social Inclusion. 

More than 200 older adults, City staff, and community 

stakeholders provided input into the development of 
the OAP 2015-2018.

In October 2012, City Council approved the Older 

Adult Plan (OAP) 2012-2014, which contained 74 
concrete actions to address the needs of Ottawa's 
older residents..  The Older Adult Plan led to many 
achievements, related to the City's infrastructure, programs 
and services, communication, and access to supports for
low income and isolated older adults.
