Older Adult Strategy

We are developing an Older Adult Strategy that will provide direction for Cambridge 50+ Recreation Community Support programs and service delivery over the next 5 years. This strategy will be completed considering input from residents and key community partners and through the lens of the World Health Organizations (WHO) Age- friendly cities framework.
