Province Recognizes June as Seniors Month

Seniors Month provides an opportunity to recognize the valuable contributions of seniors throughout the province. The Provincial Government is committed to supporting seniors in living healthy independent lives, and continuing to participate fully in their communities.

The Provincial Government has made investments to help enhance and improve the lives of older people throughout our province including $5.7 million to support affordable housing for seniors and $10.6 million for the Rent Supplement Program.

In the coming weeks, the Provincial Government will announce the 2017 recipients of the Seniors of Distinction Awards. This annual program recognizes and promotes the contributions of older persons in the province.
