Ontario Keeping Niagara Seniors Healthy and Connected

Beamsville – The Ontario government is investing in several community projects across Niagara that will help enrich the lives of seniors, including local recreational and well-being programs facilitated by the Town of Grimsby, Town of Lincoln and Township of West Lincoln.

This year’s Seniors Community Grant Program will provide municipalities and community organizations across Niagara with $71,748 in funding, helping local seniors stay fit, active and healthy in their communities.

Projects in West Niagara include a series of older adult workshops, hosted by the Township of West Lincoln at the West Lincoln Community Centre in Smithville; a seniors recreational and well-being program, facilitated by the Town of Grimsby and the Museum Memories project, facilitated by the Town of Lincoln.

Additional recipients of the Seniors Community Grant across the region include the Port Colborne Historial and Marine Museum, Faith Welland Church and Heartland Forest in Niagara Falls.

“These projects will make a big difference in the lives of older Ontarians here in Niagara,” said Sam Oosterhoff, MPP for Niagara West.

“They offer meaningful opportunities for older adults to safely take part in local life and keep connected to friends, family and the community.”

“Our government is proud to invest in local organizations which are well-positioned to meet the needs of seniors in their community,” said Raymond Cho, Minister for Seniors and Accessibility.

“Seniors Community Grants provide tremendous enjoyment and personal value to older Ontarians.”

“We are thrilled to learn about funding for the Town of Lincoln’s Museum Memories program and would like to extend our sincere thanks to MPP Oosterhoff and Minister Cho for supporting our community through the Seniors Community Grant Program,” said Sandra Easton, Mayor of the Town of Lincoln.

“Museum Memories will help support seniors, people with disabilities and people facing barriers to promote collaboration, digital and visual literacy and social engagement in Lincoln.”
