City Services Action Plan
As the baby boom population ages, the City of Thunder Bay is adapting and refining its services to continue to provide all residents with an enhanced quality of life. Older adults want to live independently, socialize with family and friends, participate in community events and activities and contribute to the community. To mark Seniors’ Month, City Council, as Committee of the Whole, approved an Age Friendly City Services Action Plan on June 22, 2015.
