Guide to Programs and Services for Seniors in Ontario

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.

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