The City of North Bay, in association with its community partner, the North Bay Parry Sound District Health Unit, are working together to improve the community's age-friendliness and ensure all residents can remain active members of the community at every stage of life. In an age-friendly community, older adults are supported to age-in-place, living active, socially engaged, independent lives. These workshops and events aim to increase awareness about issues older adults are facing and build community collaboration to support solutions.
