Seeking TCA Committee Members  - March 2021

The Toronto Council on Aging (TCA) is seeking qualified, enthusiastic, creative, and committed individuals to consider volunteering on one of our action-oriented committees. Applicants share a passion for enhancing the lives of Toronto’s older adult community by furthering the TCA mission of education, leadership and promotion of age-related topics.


About the Organization

The TCA is a charitable non-profit agency which was incorporated in 1999.

The mission of the TCA is to provide leadership and education to enhance the experience of aging and encourage age-friendly policies and practices in Toronto’s workplaces, services, organizations and neighborhoods. Our work centres around a shared vision for a community that respects, values, and empowers its older adults and provides them with opportunities to participate fully in their community.

The Council is seeking volunteers for some of our committees with a strong interest in promoting ‘aging well’ in our community. Presently, the Council is working on several virtual and accessible projects to provide older adults with social, recreational and educational programs and information sessions. All projects of the organization are supported by 4 committees; 3 of these committees are now actively seeking new members (in bold below:
