National Seniors Day

Date: October 1st

This is an occasion where all Canadians can join in celebrating older adults across Canada – whether a parent, a co-worker, a neighbour, or a friend. The Government of Canada is proud to acknowledge the life-long contributions our nation’s seniors have made and continue to make to their families, communities and society. Our government is focused on improving income security, social inclusion, health and housing for seniors.

It is easy to show your respect and gratitude for the older adults in your life. There are many options to thank the seniors in your life for all of their hard work and show them just how much they’re appreciated. Here are just a few:

  • Say “thank you”
  • Take a walk together
  • Cook a meal together
  • Treat them to a day out
  • Post a message on the Seniors in Canada Facebook page
