Useful Resources

I keep this page updated with a summary of useful national, provincial and local resources so you can stay in the loop on everything from need-to-know to nice-to-know—recreation programs, volunteer opportunities, legal advisors, health care, home care and more. This is also the place to learn about the local and national organizations that are getting government and the general public talking about the issues that affect older adults.

National

CARP

CARP is a national, non-partisan non-profit organization fighting to enhance the quality of life for Canadians as they age. It represents a broad demographic—40-year-olds saving for their retirement, 50-year-olds living the sandwich-generation lifestyle and those 60-plus who are reinventing what it means to be a senior. CARP works to improve health security, eliminate ageism, and ensure financial security for people as they get older. Membership gets you a subscription to Zoomer, the magazine for Canadians 45+.

Provincial

Community Care Access Centre (CCAC)

Community Care Access Centres (CCAC) are government-funded programs that connect Ontarians to the care they need—whether it’s in their homes or in the community. Caring professionals provide an assessment of needs and coordinate services required, such as nursing, physiotherapy, personal support and counselling. To find the CCAC that serves your area, call 310-CCAC (310-2222) or use the “Find Your CCAC” tool on the CCAC website. Learn more
