City offering digital services to seniors

Monday, May 4, 2020

In light of COVID-19 and physical distancing guidelines, Seniors Services for the City of Sault Ste. Marie has altered its program delivery methods. Citizens aged 55+ can now access programming by telephone and video conference. The programming is offered in partnership with the Older Adult Centres' Association of Ontario and sponsored by the Ministry for Seniors and Accessibility.
“The goal of our seniors services is to keep people healthy, happy, and connected to their community and each other,” said Virginia McLeod, Manager of Recreation and Culture for the City of Sault Ste. Marie.

“We want to continue to deliver seniors programming and, given the current pandemic, our staff has changed the way they deliver services and interact with citizens.”
For the month of May, all Active 55+ programs, including fitness and social forums, will be delivered by telephone or video conference. For a full list of programming, along with online login and other information, please visit: or join our Facebook page @active55ssm. Details can also be obtained by calling the Drop-In Centre at 705-254-6474.
“We’re here to deliver programs that support citizens ages 55+ and, as the current situation changes, we’ll continue to evaluate our delivery models,” said Jennifer Amadio, Supervisor of Seniors Services. “We’re adapting to meet the needs of local residents.”
