City seeks public feedback on draft Seniors Strategy

05 April 2022

The City of Richmond is developing a new Council-approved Seniors Strategy 2022–2032 and is seeking input from adults aged 55 years and over, their families and those who work with the 55+ population.

There are a number of ways the public can provide feedback:

  1. Online – by visiting to learn more and complete a survey. The survey will be available until Sunday, April 24.
  2. In-person – by attending drop-in sessions at City and community partner locations. Staff and volunteers will be available to answer questions and provide additional information:

Printed copies of the survey, in both English and Chinese, will be available at the in-person sessions. To increase accessibility for all seniors, one-on-one supported survey completion sessions will also be available in-person, virtually or by phone, upon request. For assistance accessing or completing the survey, or other ways to contribute to this important engagement opportunity, email or call 604-247-4678.

By 2036, almost 40 per cent of Richmond’s population is expected to be 55 years or older. Developed in collaboration with community stakeholders, the Seniors Strategy sets a vision, five strategic directions and 29 recommended actions to be completed over the next 10 years.

The input received from the public engagement activities will be used to inform the final Seniors Strategy, which will be presented to City Council in the fall.
