Ontario is helping seniors in Cambridge stay active and connected to their community. The province is investing in one of up to 40 new Seniors Active Living Centres across the province.
The William E. Pautler 50+ Recreation Centre on Concession Road is receiving funding to expand seniors programs to meet the unique fitness, healthy lifestyle and learning needs of Cambridge. Funding may be used for both operating costs and equipment purchases.
“As a nurse, I know how important it is for seniors – indeed everyone – to have welcoming community places to gather, socialize and exercise,” said Kathryn McGarry, MPP Cambridge.
“Thank you to all the volunteers and staff at Pautler centre for working hard to offer such a wonderful home for physical activity, building friendships and ongoing learning.”
With this expansion, Ontario now supports programs at more than 300 Seniors Active Living Centre locations across the province. These programs offer seniors a range of activities tailored to the unique interests and needs of the community from exercise classes to music clubs, workshops on video editing to the use of community kitchens, along with a number of social outings.
Ontario's 2018 Budget is supporting seniors and their families by:
Ontario’s plan to support care, create opportunity and make life more affordable during this period of rapid economic change includes a higher minimum wage and better working conditions, free tuition for hundreds of thousands of students, easier access to affordable child care, and free prescription drugs for everyone under 25, and 65 or over, through the biggest expansion of medicare in a generation.
