Ontario Celebrates Seniors Month

New one-stop-shop website connecting seniors and their families to government services and resources

June is Seniors Month in Ontario – a time to honour and celebrate the contributions seniors have made to help make this province the great place it is today.

To make it easier and more convenient for seniors and their families to find the information they need to connect to services and resources, the Ontario government is launching a new and interactive website at Ontario.ca/seniors.

The simple and easy to use website and its search tool provides a one-stop-shop for seniors and their families to have all the information and resources they need on how to connect government services and community supports such as home and housing supports, health and well-being, recreation, caregiving, and finances.

Seniors can easily find out how to connect to services such as Health811, renew a driver’s licence, and find tax credits. It also helps seniors find other community resources including local seniors organizations that offer social, cultural and recreational programs.

This year’s Senior’s Month theme, Working for Seniors, highlights the programs and services that are helping seniors all over the province stay fit, healthy, active and connected to their family, friends and communities.

Ontario is working for seniors by investing more than ever before in hundreds of local programs and services every year because when seniors have more opportunities to be social and together, they have a happier and better quality of life.
