2018–2020 Municipal Action Plan for Seniors

The 2018-2020 Municipal Action Plan for Seniors, titled Montréal, a city reflective of seniors' needs, was unveiled in June 2018 as part of the 30th colloquium of the Carrefour action municipale et famille.

An answer to the priorities expressed by our seniors

The plan is made up of seven objectives and four main areas of action, including more than ten flagship measures, in order to meet the challenges and needs of this population.

  • The first area of action aims to make the city and its neighborhoods a more human living environment, where seniors can get around easily and safely.
  • The second area of action pertains to social cohesion, with measures aiming to fight against exclusion and maltreatment, while promoting inclusion and respect for diversity.
  • The participation and involvement of seniors in their community represents the third area of action of the municipal action plan.
  • The final area of action aims to place seniors at the heart of the exchanges between the municipal administration and its partners, in order for their common projects to reflect seniors’ priorities.

The 2018-2020 Municipal Action Plan for Seniors is part of the Social development policy “Montréal de tous les possibles!”. It is the result of a consultation process carried out from January to March 2018 with institutions, community organizations and senior citizens, through online surveys and discussion meetings held in various areas of the city and with various groups of citizens. No less than 2,346 persons took part in this consultation process.

The implementation of the Age-friendly Municipality (MADA) initiative was made possible thanks to the financial contribution of the Secrétariat aux Aînés of the Ministère de la Famille.

Montréal would like to thank all participants.
