draft Draft

Deanne Bergey, Director, Community and Protective Services, noted that Administration is coordinating a working group to ensure age friendly initiatives do not get overlooked in the upcoming accessibility audit, planned to be released in early 2022. Henry Hunter, Chair, and Linda Mywaart, Vice Chair, agreed to participate on the working group.

Committee member, Luana Bussieres, noted the Wood Buffalo Community Foundation has a “Healthy Community” grant open for registrations to municipalities until the end of May, 2021. The committee supported the suggestion that the Social Planner, Martin Byaruhanga, apply on behalf of the Committee with hopes of having the age friendly accessibility initiatives go through the grant rather than the audit as it will likely be quicker and more efficient.
