About the Oxford Master Aging Plan

Minimize

The Master Aging Plan is a vehicle for Oxford County seniors to let local service providers, businesses and governments know the services they need now and into the future. It encompasses health care, social services, the built environment, transportation, housing, recreation and other components of a senior-friendly community.

The project is a partnership between seniors and agencies from across the County, including seniors centres, community support services, health services, residential care facilities and others. The Oxford Master Aging Plan officially launched in July 2011 with a $41,000 grant from the Ontario Trillium Foundation (OTF) and is sponsored by the United Way of Oxford.
