Ontario is supporting the health and well-being of seniors during COVID-19 by investing $14.3 million in Seniors Active Living Centre programs in 2020-21. This includes over $54,000 in the Seniors Active Living Centre program at the Newmarket Seniors Meeting Place. Seniors Active Living Centre operators will use the funds to help local seniors stay safe and socially connected through virtual and remote programs.
“Our government is committed to protecting the health and well-being of seniors in Newmarket and across our province,” said Christine Elliott, MPP for Newmarket-Aurora. “We know that the COVID-19 pandemic has created challenges for many seniors, who miss regular in-person interactions. This funding will support Newmarket’s Seniors Meeting Place in its efforts to deliver programming that enables Newmarket seniors to safely stay connected in the community.”
