Designing Healthy Housing & Innovative Communities
The Seniors’ Summit is an annual event taking place at Trent University on October 27th from 8:30-4:00. This year will highlight housing affordability and other issues as well as solutions for seniors in the Peterborough area.
Peterborough Council on Aging
The Peterborough Council on Aging is a community base collaborative organization working to improve the health, safety and wellbeing of older adults in the Peterborough region. Peterborough has the distinction of having the highest proportion of people over the age of 65 in Canada at around 20%. The PCOA celebrates this fact.
The PCOA is in the final stages of developing an Age-friendly Plan for the City of Peterborough, County of Peterborough, Hiawatha First Nation and Curve Lake First Nation. When completed in early 2017, the Age-friendly Plan will be our guide for improving the community as we age.
