For the first time in our history, there are more Ontarians over 65 than children under 15. The number of seniors is set to double in Ontario over the next 25 years to more than four million.
Many of today’s seniors lead active and vibrant lives and richly contribute to their communities. However, research shows that one of the biggest risk factors and the leading cause of depression for seniors is social isolation.
Find out how you can submit your ideas to help reduce social isolation for seniors. Your ideas could be funded in the 2018 Ontario budget. Read more about the program and the submission guide. The deadline to submit is November 3, so don’t delay.
