Age Friendly

Pinawa was chosen as a pilot community for Manitoba’s Age Friendly Initiative.

An age-friendly community:

  • Recognizes the diversity among older Manitobans
  • Encourages healthy, active aging
  • Supports the contributions of older Manitobans
  • Promotes the participation of older Manitobans in all aspects of our community
  • Engages stakeholders in building age-friendly communities
  • Creates accessible, safe environments for older adults
  • Treats people of all ages with respect

Everyone Benefits

  • Secure neighbourhoods are safe for children, women and older adults
  • Older adults receive services and supports they need
  • Barrier-free buildings and streets enhance the mobility for people of all abilities, and all ages
  • The whole community benefits from the participation of older persons in volunteer or paid work and civic activities
