“Our senior residents are active contributors to our community,” said Ashley Grigg, director, community and economic development. “Through our Seniors Advisory Council, and support from local agencies, our focus is to ensure services and programs are available for them to assist in their day-to-day lives.”

The City of Port Colborne will also be launching PORTicipate Profiles, highlighting seniors in the community who are active users of many of the seniors programs, services, and volunteer opportunities on their social media platforms.
