Financial Assistance to Improve Seniors' Quality of Life

12 février 2018

Saint-Laurent, February 12, 2018 - At its monthly general meeting on February 6, Saint-Laurent Council agreed to grant financial assistance totalling $13,140 to twelve organizations and associations that contribute toward improving seniors' quality of life. The recipients are:

  • Aînés du village Montpellier
  • Association des résidents de la maison Badeaux-Sauvé
  • Beth Ora Seniors for the Golden Age Association
  • Carrefour des aînés de Saint-Laurent
  • Club de l'âge d'or Saint-Hippolyte
  • Club de l'âge d'or de Saint-Sixte
  • Comité des résidents du manoir Saint-Laurent
  • Demeures Sainte-Croix
  • Place à la marche
  • Résidence Alexis-Nihon
  • Résidents du manoir de Casson
  • Senior Citizens Neighborhood Association 

"Granting financial support to seniors' organizations is a logical follow-up to the actions taken by our administration to improve the everyday lives of seniors on its territory," emphasized
Saint-Laurent Mayor Alan DeSousa. "Over the past few years, in fact, we have already implemented a number of measures intended for seniors, such as the Parc Caron outdoor landscaping project, as part of the Senior-Friendly Municipality process, as well as making municipal buildings more universally accessible."

As it may be recalled, Ville de Montréal obtained official accreditation as a Senior-Friendly municipality (Municipalité amie des aînés) by the Québec government in 2012. Then in January 2013, Saint-Laurent announced its commitment to the program by adopting the principles proposed in the Municipal action plan for seniors 2013-2015, in order to implement measures to promote the quality of life of senior citizens.
