What is an Age-Friendly City?   Winnipeg is part of a global movement to create an age-friendly city. Age-friendly cities offer enhanced opportunities for citizens of all ages to enjoy healthy, active lives with the security, social participation and community support that allow a high quality of life. In practical terms, an age-friendly city adapts its structures and services to be accessible to and inclusive of older people with varying needs and capacities.
