A municipality that is concerned about older people’s needs must take action on a number of interrelated fronts. It is therefore important to adapt public policies and programs so that they are more supportive of active ageing and pave the way for more collaborative local and regional action in favour of older people. A number of sectors of municipal activity are concerned by active ageing. Representatives of all these sectors (transportation, urban planning, community life, etc.) must work together, and with older people, to find viable solutions. An integrated vision will allow the municipality to take care of present and future generations of older people. For example, a rural municipality that manages to keep its families on its territory and attract others will, in the medium and long term, ensure a continued vitality that will enable it to maintain certain services that will be used by both young people and older adults.
