Primary Clients

The primary clients of the Office of the Seniors’ Advocate are seniors. The systemic needs of older adults is the main concern of this Office. The Seniors' Advocate Act defines a "senior" as an individual who is 65 years of age or older, or less than 65 years of age and receives seniors' services. "Seniors' services" are the programs, services or systems of support, prescribed in the regulations, that are related to health care, personal care, housing, transportation or finances that are used by or associated with seniors. "Service providers" means the public or private persons or bodies prescribed in the regulations who fund or deliver, in whole or in part, seniors' services.
