Dear Friends,

This past year our board of directors focused on refining its strategic priorities to attract new funding to enable the charity to provide new programs and services to older Ontarians.

We continued our advocacy and educational work at the Senior Advisory Committee (federal level).

This month’s newsletter delves into these topics and offers a variety of resources to assist you in deciding what steps to take to secure your future.
