Age-friendly communities promote healthy and active aging through policies, programs, services, civic participation and surrounding environment. People in age-friendly communities are supported in maintaining their independence and have access to the community supports and services they require. The Township of Madawaska Valley is championing the development of an overall Rural Renfrew County Age Friendly Community Planning Template.
The Township of Madawaska Valley is interested in hearing from you in regards to Age Friendly Community Planning through our downloadable survey. Check out for a copy of the survey. We ask that completed surveys be returned to the Township no later than July 24th 2016.
