Celebrating National Seniors Day

On October 1, the Government of Canada proudly celebrates National Seniors Day, formally recognizing the tremendous contributions of Canadian seniors.

By staying active, engaged and informed, seniors across Canada are demonstrating to all Canadians what it means to age well.

Let us take this opportunity on National Seniors Day to show our appreciation and celebrate seniors and all of their contributions.

I encourage you to find your own unique way to celebrate the seniors in your life. However you choose to express your gratitude, the message that we value older Canadians will be heard—and appreciated.

Looking for ideas on how to celebrate the seniors in your life?

How about baking cookies for grandma, hosting a community social or sending a thank-you note to the seniors you know? You can also send a personalized e-postcard or print a certificate of appreciation.

Everyone can get involved! Visit our ideas page for other suggestions!

Seniors have worked hard to build this country, and they continue to contribute to its success. For that we thank our seniors and wish you all a happy National Seniors Day!

The Honourable Diane Finley, P.C.M.P.
Minister of Human Resources and Skills Development

The Honourable Alice Wong, P.C.M.P.
Minister of State (Seniors)
