The Edmonton Seniors Coordinating Council (ESCC) works alongside stakeholders for collective community action that engages, empowers and enables older adults and supports their well-being.
In its role, ESCC convenes tables of thought leaders, experts, changemakers, program developers, and grassroots activists to support older adults. These eager stakeholders come from diverse sectors and are working together to reimagine aging in Edmonton. Initiatives are taking place at all levels—from providing services and programming for older adults to advocating for systems-level change benefiting older adults.
With a growing number of Albertans living longer, the need for community-based supports is greater than ever. Collective action is essential to meeting this need.
Age Friendly Edmonton™ (AFE) seeks to build a city that values, respects and actively supports the well-being of older adults. Age Friendly Edmonton™ is an initiative of the Edmonton Seniors Coordinating Council, supported by the City of Edmonton.
The Seniors Home Supports Program is a collaborative of seniors centres which provide referrals to various home supports services for older Edmontonians.
Since its inception, ESCC has been at the centre of many discussions and initiatives to build Edmonton’s seniors sector. Explore some of our past work and projects here.
