Seniors' Advisory Committee
The Seniors Advisory Committee Outreach Team will be popping up at different locations throughout the city in August and September. SAC is conducting a survey and wants to engage with residents 50+ on issues that seniors are facing in our community. To find out where we will be, visit the Public Participation Calendar.
The committee (Bylaw 26/2018) shall:

- Inform Council of initiatives of other levels of government or community trends that could affect seniors;
- Develop and maintain relationships with individuals and organizations that focus on seniors’ matters, as required within the scope of the committee;
- Solicit feedback from seniors in the community when the topic is in the scope of the committee mandate or at the direction of Council; and
- Report to Council at least once per year regarding:
- The Committee's progress relative to its mandate;
