MPP Michael Chan is pleased to announce that Ontario is now accepting applications from organizations interested in opening new Seniors Active Living Centres, to develop up to 40 new centres across the province over the next three years.
These new centres will help meet the needs of Ontario’s growing seniors’ population by offering programming that supports seniors to remain independent, healthy and active, safe and socially-connected. Programming could include a range of activities such as exercise classes, transportation services and communal dining experiences.
“Seniors are a valued part of every community, generously contributing the wisdom and knowledge they have gained from life experiences to strengthen and sustain our province. I am proud of our government’s efforts to enrich their lives and invest in endeavours to ensure that Ontario continues to be one of the best places in the world to grow older.”
— Michael Chan, M.P.P., Markham-Unionville
The province currently supports a network of 263 centres across Ontario that welcome more than 100,000 people each year.
Supporting seniors in living healthy and active lives is part of our plan to create jobs, grow our economy, and help people in their everyday lives.
“We are expanding the network of seniors centres across the province to help keep seniors active, healthy and engaged. We are encouraged by the level of interest already, and look forward to receiving proposals that look to support our diverse communities.”
— Dipika Damerla, Minister of Seniors Affairs
