SVA hosts talk on “Creating an age-friendly community”

(via Stittsville Village Association)

SVA AGM: Our special topic is: “Creating an age-friendly community”

Join us on Thursday, November 17 at 7 PM for the Stittsville Village Association’s annual general meeting. Location: 8B Sweetnam Drive. 

Our special topic is: “Creating an age-friendly community”
With baby boomers reaching retirement, and several hundred retirement residence spaces being built (or in the proposal stage) in Stittsville, we’re interested in better understanding what impact this growth will have on our community, and how Stittsville might evolve to better serve the needs of an older demographic.

Special guests:


  • Presentation of the 2016 SVA Volunteer Award
  • Election of new SVA board members

All residents welcome. For more information please email

When I was doing my walking tours of Stittsville to check out your infrastructure and drainage I would have appreciated benches on the TC Trail and at the Jackson Trails stormwater management pond. I live across from a large park which used to have a retirement home down the street. A very elderly lady used to walk to the park but there was nowhere to sit. She was the only one I saw who came that way
