Do you have a special occasion that deserves recognition? Here are some tips from the Guide to Programs and Services for Seniors in Ontario.
- You can mark a special occasion by requesting a congratulatory message from Her Majesty The Queen, The Governor General of Canada, The Lieutenant Governor of Ontario, The Prime Minister of Canada, and The Premier of Ontario! So make the next significant birthday milestone (80 year or more) or wedding anniversary (25 years or more) extra special.
- Senior Achievement Awards recognizing Ontarians over the age of 65 who have made outstanding contributions in any field. www.ontario.ca/uj97
- Senior of the Year Award is presented by each municipality in Ontario to an individual over the age of 65 who has enriched the social, cultural or civic life of the community. www.ontario.ca/ruw
Don’t forget to mark these special dates in your calendar.
- Seniors’ Month, celebrated every June in Ontario, is a time to recognize the many contributions seniors make to their families, community, province and country. www.ontario.ca/seniorsmonth
