Through Seniors' Eyes

Building Age-Friendly Communities

"Cities have the capability of providing something for everybody, only because, and only when, they are created by everybody"
- Jane Jacobs, American-Canadian Journalist, 1961


“Through Seniors’ Eyes…” is a graduate thesis project at Carleton University, which inspires intergenerational learning and collaborative community building within two retirement communities in Ottawa, Ontario. The focus of this project is to explore the relationships that exist between age-friendly communities and the quality of life experienced by Canada’s aging population.

Special thanks to the Riverstone Retirement Communities for participating in this project.
