Message from the Minister for Seniors and Accessibility
I’m honoured to have been appointed as Ontario’s first Minister for Seniors and Accessibility. I am excited by the path ahead as we work to ensure all Ontarians, including people with disabilities and seniors, live with dignity and respect in all areas of life.
My ministry’s job is to support accessibility champions like you, who are leading the way to an accessible Ontario. I know that we need to work together to identify issues facing seniors and people with disabilities, find common sense solutions to accessibility barriers, and foster the changes that need to happen in our province.
When we promote accessibility and inclusion for all Ontarians, we all benefit. With greater demand for accessible products and services come greater opportunities for Ontario businesses to showcase the innovation we’re known for.
As the number of seniors in Ontario increases in the coming years, we will enjoy more people with lived experience who can help transform Ontario into a more accessible place to live. Seniors from across Ontario are already assisting with this work by serving on municipal accessibility advisory committees, volunteering with community organizations, or simply by sharing their understanding of how communities change and grow.
Your support and collaboration with my ministry have been valued and appreciated, and I trust that our partnership will continue to grow.
I am looking forward to working together to help seniors and people with disabilities live their best lives.
Minister for Seniors and Accessibility
