Ad hoc seniors’ roundtable
Formed in October 2016, the ad hoc seniors’ roundtable has the mission of ensuring and enhancing seniors’ well-being through discussion, sharing, concerted action and partnership among the various stakeholders in the seniors’ community and the municipality.
This roundtable will also give the City an opportunity to learn more about seniors’ needs and identify the issues that concern them, ultimately to help improve the quality of their lives.
More specifically, the roundtable has the mandate to:
- represent seniors’ diversity;
- contribute to decision-making in terms of City Council’s orientations regarding seniors;
- pass on to City Council information and opinions about the orientations to take to enhance seniors’ well-being;
- foster seniors’ participation and integration into the community so as to promote intergenerational solidarity;
- identify the level of services to be offered to seniors by the City;
- produce a final report outlining ideas, comments and recommended improvements.
During the months of November and December, the members will meet once or twice a week to prepare a report of recommendations for City Council.
A number of issues will be discussed, such as transportation services, recreational service offerings, municipal facilities, the upgrading of the parks, arena, outdoor and indoor swimming pools, etc.
