“Seniors, like every Canadian, deserve a safe and affordable place to call home. Thanks to the National Housing Strategy we are building new homes in Simcoe County, and all across Canada, ensuring seniors have the opportunity to age safely and remain connected to their communities. We know that when seniors feel safe and can age in place all Canadians benefit.” – The Honourable Filomena Tassi, Minister of Seniors
