A Guide to Programs and Services for Seniors in Ontario

June, 2013 - The Ontario Seniors’ Secretariat released a new edition of “A Guide to Programs and Services for Seniors in Ontario” on June 3, 2013.

The guide helps seniors find what they need, when and where they need it. It is smaller and easier to handle and features up-to-date information on provincial and federal services available to seniors.

The guide is now available in 16 languages - nine more than before - in recognition of Ontario's diverse communities. (Arabic, Chinese, Farsi, Gujarati, Italian, Korean, Polish, Portuguese, Punjabi, Russian, Spanish, Tamil, Urdu and Vietnamese)

Ontario’s seniors’ guide provides practical information on issues that affect our quality of life as we age, including:

...Health, wellness and active living

...Safety, security, finances and transportation

...Housing, long-term care homes and caregiving

The seniors’ guide is available online at www.ontario.ca/seniorsguide and may be ordered free of charge through ServiceOntario Publications ( www.ontario.ca/publications) or by calling 1-888-910-1999 (TTY: 1-800-387-5559).
