An Age-Friendly Cumberland

This page was last reviewed on November 30, 2023.

The Village of Cumberland is undertaking an age-friendly assessment and creating an action plan for improvement from June to October 2019.

An age-friendly community is one that enables people of all ages to actively participate in community activities and where everyone is treated with respect, regardless of their age. In particular, it is a place that makes it easier for older people to stay connected and active in their communities [definition adapted from WHO, Towards an Age Friendly World].

The Village of Cumberland will review the strengths and weaknesses of:

  • Public facilities, parks and key spaces in the community
  • Primary transit routes and ease of “getting around” the Village
  • Access to services and programs for those age 55+
  • Opportunities for aging in place and within the Village overall
  • Experience of aging in Cumberland – respect and inclusion
  • Age-friendly policy and planning opportunities
