What matters to you?

What do we want to learn?
We want to learn from the perspectives and experiences of adults 50+ who live in the Niagara region of Ontario, so that, together, we can further strengthen Niagara as an age-friendly community.

The Age-Friendly Niagara Council (AFNC) and the Niagara Older Adult Alliance (NOAA) work closely together to advance a common vision of an inclusive ‘community for all ages’ and ‘one voice for older adults in Niagara’.

The AFNC is comprised primarily of community volunteers, along with representatives from government, education, not-for-profit organizations and businesses. NOAA includes leaders who serve on local municipal older adult advisory committees in each of Niagara’s 12 local municipalities.
The work of strengthening Niagara as an age-friendly community began in 2009, and much has been achieved since that time. Through this survey, the AFNC and the NOAA invite you to help build upon what we’ve already learned.

The survey questions are guided by the Niagara Aging Strategy and Action Plan (NASAP) implementation priorities (2018-2019); and what we’ve learned about COVID-19 impacts on older adults in Niagara. In addition, we want to learn more about issues of interest and/or concern to older adults in today’s world.

What will we do with the survey results?
The survey results will help to inform the AFNC and NOAA in establishing priorities. The work of these two groups cannot be done in isolation.

The survey will take about 7-10 minutes to complete. A few minutes of your time will make a difference. Your voice matters!
The deadline for survey completion (online or paper copy) is Friday, July 15, 2022. Please note that your responses are anonymous. All survey information will be kept confidential by Niagara Connects researchers, who are administering the survey on behalf of the AFNC.

The work of this survey is being done in partnership with INCommunities, with funding support from the Government of Canada through the New Horizons for Seniors program.

Thank you for participating in this survey.
