City residents invited to participate in age-friendly survey

The City of Fredericton Age-Friendly Community Advisory Committee and its partners are inviting residents of the city to participate in an Age-Friendly Survey.  The results of the survey will be used to help create age-friendly policies and plans for Fredericton.

The online version of the survey can be found by visiting   It should take about 20 minutes to complete the survey.  Most questions require a click to answer; comments will be collected in the last section.  For those who want to arrange an in-person survey interview, they can send an email to

The survey will run until March 29, 2018.


Why is the survey important?

The survey will:

  • help with long term decision-making on issues that affect us, on the part of elected officials, City staff, and the many non-profit organizations which continually work to make Fredericton a great city in which to live, work and play.
  • provide a basis for ongoing public discussion about our concerns. As data from the survey is analyzed and important issues identified, the plan is to follow-up with community consultations and forums. This will provide ongoing clarity and help in the creation of an age-friendly action plan to ensure that our needs are being met.

“Our population is aging; something that will shape our city, province and country over the next decade and beyond.  We need to address public policy issues related to this matter now to ensure that we become a more age-friendly community.”

--Coun. Eric Megarity, Chair, City of Fredericton Age-Friendly Community Advisory Committee

“This is one of the final steps in Fredericton becoming recognized as an age-friendly community under the provincial government’s Age-Friendly Community Recognition Program. The goal of the effort is to enable seniors to live in secure, healthy environments, because their opinions and contributions are so important to our community.”
