Given Ontario’s aging population, the Province is focused on helping seniors live healthy, active and socially connected lives, including:
How we’re creating more opportunity for people
Introducing a new dental program for low-income seniors who lack benefits. Individual seniors with annual incomes of $19,300 or less, or senior couples with combined incomes of less than $32,300, will be able to receive dental services in public health units, community health centres and Aboriginal Health Access Centres across the province. The program would begin by late summer 2019.
The dental care program will be an annual investment of approximately $90 million when fully implemented.
