Ontario's seniors population is growing at an unprecedented rate, yet our health and social services are not prepared to meet the needs of this critical demographic change. The upcoming provincial election is an important opportunity to bring attention to this issue so that it is a top priority for all political parties. As organizations representing seniors and providers of care across the continuum, we invite you to join us for this special election forum.
André Picard, a Globe and Mail health reporter, will host a discussion with invited representatives from the Liberal, Progressive Conservative, New Democrat, and Green parties on their plans for addressing the future care and service needs of Ontario's seniors. There is no charge to attend but you must register prior to April 16. We hope you can join us.
