Ontario Keeping Simcoe-Grey Seniors Healthy, Active and Connected

Seniors Community Grants Supports Seniors in Collingwood, Wasaga and Alliston

The Ontario government is investing in its seniors in Simcoe-Grey by funding almost $90,000 in four projects that will help seniors stay safe, fit, active, healthy and socially connected across the community with Seniors Community Grants.

Recipients in Simcoe-Grey include:

  • Collingwood Leisure Time Club $25,000
  • Community Services $24,744
  • Wasaga Beach Public Library $23,131
  • Gibson Cultural Centre Corporation $13,065

“These investments make a big difference in the lives of Ontario’s older adults here in Simcoe-Grey” said Simcoe-Grey MPP Brian Saunderson. “Staying connected close to home and safely taking part in local life lets our seniors keep active with friends, family and the community.”

“Seniors Community Grants are keeping our seniors fit, active, healthy and socially connected close to home, in their communities,” said Raymond Cho, Minister for Seniors and Accessibility. “Our government is proud to invest in these projects with local organizations to meet the needs of seniors, provide the supports seniors need and deserve that also help to battle social isolation.”

These projects are part of the 280 Seniors Community Grants investing into communities across Ontario this year.  Since 2018, Ontario has funded over 1500 community based projects and invested almost $28 million dollars in Seniors Community Grants that have kept seniors fit, active, healthy and connected while helping to end social isolation and combat ageism.


  • The Seniors Community Grants Program provides funding ranging from $1,000 up to $25,000 for local projects.
  • Ontario’s Seniors are the province’s fastest growing demographic, and by 2024, there will be 3 million Ontarians over the age of 65
