COVID-19 information for seniors can be found on COVID-19: Seniors & Vulnerable People and information on vaccines can be found at COVID-19 Vaccines.

 All Torontonians benefit from the energy and lived experience that seniors bring to the city’s diverse communities and neighbourhoods.

Adults aged 65+ make up 15.6 per cent of Toronto’s population and this number is expected to grow to 21.2 per cent by 2041. This means that there are now more seniors in Toronto than children under the age of 15.

The City of Toronto offers many services for seniors. There are also many community-based services for seniors which can be accessed:
