Local Aging Plan

The Township of Tiny is committed to exploring opportunities to enhance senior services.  Creating a community where older people are valued and can enjoy good health, happiness, and fulfillment is our priority.  As a result, the Township has undertaken a local aging study.  The goal of the strategy is to improve the overall health, well-being and quality of life for older adults and seniors across the Township. The Local Aging Plan outlines Tiny's opportunities to enhance senior services and strategies to develop an Age-Friendly Community.  

We have collected views on:
  • Barriers to accessing services
  • Suggestions for future service and delivery
  • Recreation, social & health service delivery
