The Township of South Glengarry is one of 15 Age-Friendly Communities (AFC) in Eastern Ontario. On June 27, 2016 the Council of the Township of South Glengarry adopted an Age Friendly Community Action Plan.

 What is an Age-Friendly Community (AFC)?

 An age-friendly community:

  • recognizes that seniors have a wide range of skills and abilities;
  • understands and meets the age-related needs of seniors;
  • respects the decisions and lifestyle choices of seniors;
  • protects those seniors who are vulnerable;
  • recognizes that seniors have a lot to offer their community; and
  • recognizes how important it is to include seniors in all areas of community life
