The Hon. Raymond Cho, MPP
Minister of Seniors and Accessibility
As Ontario’s Minister for Seniors and Accessibility, I look forward to supporting positive aging for Ontario’s older adults by encouraging active engagement and healthy lifestyles in their communities. Our government respects the contributions of, and challenges facing, seniors and people with disabilities. That respect will be at the heart of everything we do. We know that Ontario’s seniors prefer to live independently, with dignity and respect, in communities— and that they may need timely access to services and supports. That is where this guide to Ontario’s programs and services for seniors comes in. As a senior citizen myself, I am pleased to tell you that it provides clear, accurate and up-to-date information on programs and services fundamental to seniors’ well-being. This guide also makes it easy to find out about and access information on the wide range of government services available in Ontario—everything from active living activities to health and wellness, from caregiving to finances, from housing to transportation… and much, much more. In addition to this guide, I encourage you to visit ontario.ca and explore our online guide to programs and services available in Ontario to help you lead a safe, engaged, active and healthy life.
