Ontario seniors grants for 10 Durham institutions

Four of region’s organizations were the successful recipients of $86,320 in total Seniors Community Grants, according to Durham MPP Todd McCarthy.

They include:

  • Clarington Public Library (Bowmanville) $17,740
  • Municipality of Clarington (Bowmanville) $18,630
  • Theatre 3×60 (Scugog) $24,950
  • New Life Global Church (Oshawa) $25,000

“Our Seniors Community Grants are an important part of the community,” said McCarthy. “They bring seniors and the whole community together with services, activities and programs that ensure our seniors stay connected all year long.”

Senior Community Grants deliver a variety of programs such as book clubs, fitness classes, health and wellness services, social groups, and other special events.

“Clarington is fortunate to be home to a vibrant and active older adult community, and we are strengthened by the way residents from all walks of life are included in our municipality,” said Mayor Adrian Foster. “We are grateful to the Province of Ontario for these funds, which will help our 55+ residents connect, learn, thrive, and continue to age well here in Clarington.”

This announcement comes as Ontario marks the end of Seniors Month. Ontario government is investing up to $6 million to all current Seniors Community Grant programs across the province that connect seniors with resources and activities.
