October 1 is National Seniors Day.

The Government of Canada is proud to pay tribute to the seniors who have helped build our country and continue to make valuable contributions to Canadian communities, workplaces and society.

National Seniors Day is an occasion for all Canadians to appreciate and celebrate seniors. There are lots of ways for individuals, community groups, schools, employers and families to celebrate National Seniors Day—whether you are participating an event or simply meeting a senior for coffee.

All Canadians are encouraged to connect with seniors and recognize them for the important role they play in their lives, our society and our economy on Twitter using the hashtag #SayThanks and to visit and like our Seniors in Canada Facebook page, which is an engaging space for seniors, families and communities to receive the latest information about Government of Canada initiatives that benefit seniors.
