The Ontario Seniors’ Secretariat (OSS) advocates for, undertakes and supports policy and program initiatives that help improve the quality of life of seniors, and undertakes public education efforts for and about seniors. We also work with seniors’ organizations and across government to develop programs and services that meet the needs of seniors and help them enjoy safe, active and healthy lives. We simplify access to government for seniors and their families.
The secretariat actively promotes the contributions seniors make to Ontario communities.
