Toronto Seniors’ Forum seeks input in person and in writing
  
The Toronto Seniors’ Forum will host two large community consultation sessions
with seniors in Toronto on May 16 and again on October 19. The initial session,
this Monday at the North York Civic Centre, provides an excellent opportunity
for seniors to discuss and identify important issues and priorities.

Date: Monday, May 16
Time: 1p.m. to 3:30 p.m.
Location: Council Chamber, North York Civic Centre, 5100 Yonge Street

To guarantee a seat at the consultation meeting, seniors wishing to attend
should call Delilah Lushington or Lin Mu at 416-392-9125 and advise if any
special accommodations are needed.

To complement the large session, the Forum is also conducting a series of
smaller focus groups, and sending out a written survey to organizations that
play a role in key seniors’ issues. Focus groups will be conducted from May 17
to May 31.

The Toronto Seniors’ Forum is a group of 30 seniors who share a commitment to
ensuring seniors have a voice in the equitable provision of City services
(e.g., housing, transportation, recreation, and health promotion).

Outcomes from these consultations that relate to City services will be reported
to City Council.
