Latest in a series of commitments to help Ontario seniors


ETOBICOKE - An Ontario PC government will support Ontario seniors by implementing a comprehensive dental care program that provides low income seniors with the quality care they deserve, Ontario PC Leader Doug Ford announced today.

“Many Ontarians have dental insurance but two-thirds of low income seniors do not and cannot afford it,” said Ford. “Under a PC government, low income seniors will receive the high quality dental care they deserve — and it’s all on us. Because, in Ontario, we take care of those in need.” 


Ford highlighted that an Ontario PC Government will take action to ensure Ontario seniors can live with dignity, pay their bills, and receive the quality health care they need when they need it. 


“We’re going to reduce hydro bills by 12% to help Ontario seniors make ends meet,” said Ford, “we will also create 30,000 new long-term care beds that will put an end to hallway health care and give people the care they need in the most appropriate and dignified setting.”
