June is Seniors' Month
June 2016 marks the 32nd anniversary of Seniors’ Month in Ontario. To recognize the important role seniors play in our communities, this year’s theme is “Seniors Making a Difference”.
Seniors’ Month is an opportunity to celebrate the outstanding contributions of Mississauga’s older adults and put the spotlight on the local services and programs available in our community to assist older adults to live as independently as possible.  
Community Centres and Libraries across the City are celebrating their older adults through a wide variety of events and activities. In addition an Older Adult Appreciation Week will be held from June 12-18. During this week, the city’s older adults will be enjoying special offers, such as discounts at City-run golf courses and refreshments at Community Centres.
