New forum gives seniors voice at City Hall|
| || ||
The Toronto Seniors' Forum is the newest way for seniors to add their voices at
City Hall. Up to 30 seniors aged 60 and older from across Toronto will be
invited to meet regularly to share their ideas on issues and priorities for
seniors in Toronto. Up to five forum members will also sit on the Roundtable on
Seniors, which has been set up by Mayor David Miller to advise Toronto Council.
Seniors who have previous volunteer experience or community involvement, and
who are able to commit up to eight hours a month to giving seniors a voice at
City Hall, are invited to attend an information session to learn more details
about the Toronto Seniors' Forum. Sessions are scheduled for the following
dates and locations:
