Upcoming Event: Lunch’n Learn with the Wynford Seniors Club & Seniors Conference

Japanese Social Services is very pleased to announce they teamed up with Momiji Health Care Society to apply for the Seniors Community Grant Program 2017-2018 offered by the Ontario Seniors’ Secretariat and were successful in obtaining funding. The money will be used to offer two external information sessions (and one internal) within Toronto concerning the safety issues that seniors face. This is the first time these two organizations have worked together in this way. We really appreciate OSS’s monetary support and we look forward to bringing you this high quality program.
