TORONTO – June 2017 marks the 33rd annual Seniors’ Month in Ontario.
This year, the theme is “Living Your Best Life,” encouraging Canadians over the age of sixty to be proactive, eat healthy, and continue to serve our community as leaders and mentors. Of course, through passing on their infinite knowledge and experience to us, the next generation, senior Canadians will continue to positively impact our society for generations to come.
As a premier provider of affordable housing and programming directed towards the senior members of our community, B’nai Brith Canada knows too well how important it is to provide seniors with the opportunity to share their stories with us. Particularly that we are now seeing the last generation of Holocaust survivors, it is critical that we hear these important lessons in human history.
Each month, B’nai Brith releases a program calendar for our subsidized seniors program at our national head office at 15 Hove Street in Toronto, outlining the fun activities, games, health and wellness workshops, special guests, Shabbat lunches, celebratory occasions, and fun events we’ll be hosting. Nutritious lunches and snacks are offered to all of our participants (including residents from our affordable housing residences around Toronto), who join our program to create friendships and maintain ties to their community.
B’nai Brith also hosts similar programming and services across our affordable housing residences for seniors in Montreal as well.
