As Toronto’s Seniors Advocate, I recently met with Ontario’s Minister Responsible for Seniors, Mario Sergio, to discuss a wide array of priorities to Toronto’s seniors. At this meeting, we also agreed to organize a Seniors Summit to celebrate the achievements of the Ontario and Toronto Seniors Strategies so far and discuss next steps to continue to improve the lives of our growing elder population.
Please join me at 10am-2pm on Saturday, June 18 for the Toronto Seniors Summit at City Hall!
The summit will be a half-day event for provincial, municipal and community partners including:
- an overview of seniors strategies by the elected officials of Toronto and Ontario
- a seniors celebration of Toronto’s recent World Health Organization designation as a Global Age-friendly City
- an open discussion of what seniors can do to advance their needs and interests in their community
- an informational opportunity with City Division and community partner info booths
Full details about the Toronto Seniors Summit are available on the event flyer.
I encourage you all to come, support and participate!
