Ontario is helping seniors stay involved and active in their communities by investing in 380 local projects across the province that offer programming and services specifically for seniors. Seven projects are in the Algoma District:
|Organization Name||Project Location|
|Canadian Diabetes Association Sault Ste. Marie||Sault Ste. Marie|
|City of Sault Ste. Marie||Sault Ste. Marie|
|Corporation of the Town of Espanola||Espanola|
|Dementia Care Network of Algoma||Sault Ste. Marie|
|Garden River First Nation||Garden River|
|Safe Communities Partnership Sault Ste. Marie||Sault Ste. Marie|
|Sault Ste. Marie Public Library (Centennial)||Sault Ste. Marie|
This program, now in its third year, is Ontario’s first dedicated solely to supporting seniors. It focuses on initiatives and projects in the non-profit sector that encourage greater social inclusion, volunteerism, education and community engagement for seniors across the province.
Successful projects reflect the diversity of Ontario’s seniors and can provide programming at a local, regional or provincial level. Projects include activities such as outreach and support services, training of volunteers, health and fitness programs and computer literacy.
Helping Ontario’s seniors stay active and involved in their communities is part of the government’s economic plan to build Ontario up and deliver on its number-one priority to grow the economy and create jobs. The four-part plan includes helping more people get and create the jobs of the future by expanding access to high-quality college and university education. The plan is making the largest investment in hospitals, schools, roads, bridges and transit in Ontario’s history and is investing in a low-carbon economy driven by innovative, high-growth, export-oriented businesses. The plan is also helping working Ontarians achieve a more secure retirement.
