National Seniors Day is coming up on October 1 and the Government of Canada’s Action for Seniors Report has been presented by the Honourable Alice Wong, Minister of State for Seniors. In her words:
The report is the result of an extensive collaboration with 22 federal departments and agencies and reflects the wide-ranging nature of seniors’ issues that cuts across these organizations. It highlights the many programs and resources available for seniors, ranging from help in combating elder abuse to government supports that ensure seniors’ financial security.
I am proud of our commitment to the well-being of Canada’s seniors and I look forward to continuing to work with all levels of government, seniors and seniors’ organizations and with other stakeholders to develop other policies and programs related to seniors.
