Senior-Friendly Business Program
The Senior-Friendly Business Program is an initiative of the Moncton Mayor’s Seniors Advisory Committee in partnership with Downtown Moncton Centre-ville inc. (DMCI)
What is a senior-friendly business?
A senior-friendly business takes the needs and preferences of older adults into consideration, by providing friendly quality services and facilities to its customers.
- More seniors shopping at your establishment.
- Increased visibility among Moncton seniors.
Why should you become senior-friendly?
- 35.5% of the population in both the City and CMA is now above 50*.
- Moncton City: ratio of population above 50 rose by 2.1% from 2006 to 2011*

DMCI is pleased to represent Downtown Moncton businesses on the City of Moncton’s Bilingual Signage Committee.
In September 2010, Council did not adopt a by-law, but rather is committed to assisting, promoting, encouraging and facilitating increased bilingual commercial signage in our city. After an extensive research and consultative process, led by a committee, City Council adopted an Action Plan in June 2012.
