Newcomer seniors face unique challenges learning the language, navigating services, and connecting to the community. Our Settlement Workers offer specialized knowledge and individualized assistance with pension and disability benefits, social housing applications, receiving special support at home, and other needs.
Immigrant seniors who are permanent residents and over the age of 60 may book an appointment by calling at (416) 291-3248 in Scarborough, (416) 699-4527 in Toronto or (647) 776-2057 in North York.
We also offer a weekly seniors group. The seniors group offers participants the opportunity to make friends, enjoy cultural and recreational activities, learn from presentations and workshops, and participate in group projects. Presentation topics and group activities are proposed by members of the group. Our group sessions help to develop social networks, promote good mental health and build a sense of belonging and community.
Our seniors club meets every Tuesday afternoon at our Scarborough Site – 2600 Birchmount Rd & Wednesdays at our Toronto location – 1774 Queen St East.
