jordan-annThe City of Cornwall is taking steps to make Cornwall a more senior friendly community.

This was one priority identified by City Council in its Strategic Plan which was updated earlier this year.

Building on this, over 700 Cornwall seniors were consulted to determine what the City could do to meet this objective. Through the consultation process, suggestions for a Senior Friendly Implementation Plan were formed. A common concern of Cornwall seniors was a need for the consolidation of information about opportunities, programs and services specific to seniors.

To address this concern, and as part of a new grant from the Provincial Government, Jordan Ann Kevan de Haan has been hired as Cornwall’s Senior Friendly Community Liaison Officer.
