Creating livable, age-friendly, disability-friendly,
that benefit all citizens and visitors.
Over 40 Communities in Northern BC, are working to make their communities liveable age-friendly, disability-friendly, universally designed, inclusive for all citizens and visitors. Great things are happening due to partnerships between local governments, community members and organizations, businesses and industries. This project started in 2007 has many success stories. MUTN Phase 1 occurred over two years, from 2007-2009.
Since 2009, the Initiative has been led by the North Central Local Government Association with a minimal of central resources and less wider provincial support. A recent evaluation follow-up of the MUTN Communities (2011) shows that many of the communities are continuing with MUTN activities and making continuous progress due to previous systematic planning, policy and system changes they had introduced in Phase 1. The Evaluation and Update Report 2011 provides details on the findings including successes and challenges that the communities are facing.
