June is Seniors Month

June is Seniors' Month, an opportunity for all Ontarians to recognize the value and contributions made by seniors every day in communities across the province.

Seniors’ Month is an annual celebratory tradition in which the contributions of seniors are acknowledged and honoured throughout the province. Ontario’s population aged 65 and over is projected to more than double from 1.8 million, or 13.7 per cent of the population in 2009 to 4.1 million, or 23.2 per cent, in 2036. The growth in seniors’ share of the population will accelerate after 2011 as baby boomers begin to turn age 65. Seniors’ Month events include award ceremonies, recognition events, socials and seniors’ information fairs.

Ontario is one of the best places in the world to grow older. Ontarians across the province are encouraged to join in the celebrations taking place in their local community to recognize and thank older Ontarians who have worked hard and continue to contribute to the prosperity that we all enjoy today.
