Seniors Can Connect!

The COVID-19 pandemic has cast a spotlight on the painful reality of senior isolation and loneliness in Canada and shown the pressing need to empower seniors as digital citizens on an ongoing basis. Digital literacy and access to technology are critical for seniors to connect with community and ensure access to basic needs like food, banking and medicine.

Many barriers however prevent older people from adopting technology. The Seniors Can Connect! Program is designed to help seniors overcome these barriers, build confidence, and learn the digital skills necessary for today’s technological world.
