"The plan identifies three main goals, and outlines a significant number of programs and initiatives by which we intend to realize them. The goals are:

Healthy Seniors: We will help seniors find and access the health care services they need to be healthier and stay at home longer to improve their quality of life.

Senior-Friendly Communities: We will harness the potential and maximize the contributions of our seniors by promoting the development of age-friendly communities that weave together services and policies to enhance seniors’ well-being and participation.

Safety and Security: We will ensure that Ontario seniors are provided with the programs, services and supports that help them live safely, independently, and with dignity."
