Ontario is recognizing 15 outstanding seniors for their significant contributions to their communities and to the province after the age of 65.
This year's recipients of the Ontario Senior Achievement Awards include:
The awards will be presented at a Queen's Park ceremony on November 29 by the Honourable Elizabeth Dowdeswell, Lieutenant Governor of Ontario, and Dipika Damerla, Minister of Seniors Affairs.
Recognizing the exceptional contributions of seniors is part of Ontario's plan to create fairness and opportunity during this period of rapid economic change. The plan 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 through the biggest expansion of medicare in a generation.
" These 15 individuals serve as role models and examples of what is possible when we commit to making a positive difference in our communities. On behalf of all Ontarians, I am proud to recognize their tremendous achievements and to offer my sincerest congratulations to all."
- The Honourable Elizabeth Dowdeswell,
Lieutenant Governor of Ontario

- Dipika Damerla, Minister of Seniors Affairs
