Forum focuses on age-friendly housing

Sunshine Coast Seniors Planning Table

Please join the Housing Action Group of the Seniors Planning Table on Saturday, June 25 from 1 to 4 p.m. at the Sechelt Indian Band Hall if you are a concerned community member, non-profit or government agency that assists those impacted by current housing accessibility or affordability issues, a landlord, builder or developer.

What suggestions do you have for actions that could be taken by us as community members, as neighbours and as local and other levels of government to help make all our lives more fulfilling?  What would make living in our communities easier when we have children or as we get older?

This one event will not be able to solve our affordability or age-friendly housing challenges overnight, but it will provide an opportunity for people to get accurate information about what does exist and what may be possible to work toward. We need your ideas of what might help make local housing options, inside and out and in our neighbourhoods, more age friendly. The role of the S.C. Seniors Planning Table is to gather input to produce an age friendly community plan for implementation in the District of Sechelt and beyond.

To register, reserve an information table or find out about other upcoming age friendly focus groups, call 604-885-4088, email or see or

The Seniors Planning Table, a program of the Resource Centre, is funded for its age friendly initiative by the District of Sechelt.
