What is Age-Friendly business

Age-Friendly Business is a City of Calgary initiative to help Calgary businesses develop services and spaces that can support an aging population.

Age-Friendly Business is part of a larger initiative to prepare for an aging population called Age-Friendly Calgary. Learn more about Age-Friendly Calgary and how you can make a difference in your community.

How to be an Age-Friendly business

Any business can take steps to become more age-friendly. We have created an age-friendly checklist based on established best practices.

Any storefront business can use these criteria to identify strengths and weaknesses in their age-friendly characteristics. Where possible, adopting points from these criteria will improve the age-friendly nature of a business.

Download our Age-Friendly Business checklist, self assess your organization and submit your information online to be included in our Age-Friendly Business network. Businesses that meet the criteria will be sent a recognition letter and a sticker to place in their front window.
