The Mattawa and Region Community Development Inc.

The Mattawa and Region Community Development Inc. is preparing an Age-Friendly Plan, the purpose of which is to improve quality of life and community services for older adults living in Bonfield, Calvin, Mattawa, Mattawan and Papineau-Cameron.
This survey is intended for older adults age 55 and over living in Bonfield, Calvin, Mattawa, Mattawan and Papineau-Cameron. In the survey, you will be asked to provide your opinions to help us develop the Age-Friendly Community Plan for your municipality.
If there is more than one older adult in your household, you may complete one survey per person. You can answer the survey for yourself, or it can be completed by you on behalf of another person who is not able to do so for him/herself.
If you have completed a survey for the Mattawa and Region Age-Friendly Community Plan by telephone or in print, please do not complete this online survey. 

The answers you provide will be kept confidential, and will be used collectively to describe the survey results as a whole. If you have questions about the survey or the project, please contact Fran Laframboise, Public Health Nurse at the North Bay Parry Sound District Health Unit (fran.laframboise@healthunit.ca or 705-474-1400 x 5220).

Thank you for your interest in improving services for yourself and other older adults in your municipality. Funding for the development of an age-friendly plan has been provided by the Government of Ontario.

The Véloroute Voyageur Cycling Route

The Véloroute Voyageur Cycling Route is Ontario’s next major cycling tourism experience spanning 380-km across Northeastern Ontario from the Ottawa Valley to Sudbury East. (see photo below) Following the path of the Voyageurs over 400 years ago along three heritage waterways and 200-km of the Trans Canada Trail, the vision is that the Voyageur Cycling Route will become part of the foundational provincial cycling network with direct connections to the Waterfront Trail’s Lake Huron North Channel Cycling Route, the Georgian Bay Cycling Route, and the National Capital Region.

In this initiative led by Discovery Routes, MBEDC representing its member communities, is one of a number of partners at a committee level who serve as project advisors, ambassadors and community links helping to ensure project success.
