Age-friendly municipality

An Age-Friendly Municipality (MADA) or MRC is one that:

  • Combats ageism;
  • Adapts its policies, services and structures;
  • Adopts a comprehensive and integrated approach;
  • Promotes the participation of seniors;
  • Relies on collaborative partnerships and the mobilization of the whole community.

The age-friendly policy and the triennial action plans for both the MRC and the municipalities were adopted. The creation and adoption of such a policy confirms the commitment of these organizations towards the development and sustainability of age-friendly communities. The Ministère de la famille also officially recognized the MRC du Golfe-du-Saint-Laurent and the five municipalities as being age-friendly.
