Department of Seniors

The Department of Seniors supports the social and economic well-being of older adults. We provide leadership and policy coordination across government to help create and provide services for seniors.

We’re also responsible for implementing the SHIFT strategy. The strategy addresses the needs of our aging population and creates inclusive communities so older adults can live healthy lives and age well in their communities.
