Providing Much-Needed Support to Seniors and the those with DisabilitiesPublished on April 21, 2020
The Province is investing $11 million to help deliver meals, medicines and other essentials to those in need.
- The province is working with the Ontario Community Support Association (OCSA) to launch a new Ontario Community Support Program to expand existing Meals on Wheels services to reach low-income seniors and people with disabilities and chronic medical conditions across Ontario. The program will also develop the capacity of community organizations and others to help deliver medication and other essentials.
