Demand for Seniors Guide Exceeds Expectations

Social Services and Seniors

Demand for the first edition of the Prince Edward Island Seniors Guide has exceeded all expectations. So far, 4500 copies have been distributed since the Guide’s launch in January of this year, with another 1500 available over the next few weeks after a third printing of the popular document.

The Guide, published by the Seniors’ Secretariat through the Department of Social Services and Seniors, provides details on government programs and services available to seniors, as well as information on active living, housing, life-long learning, personal security, transportation and much more.

“The Seniors’ Guide very clearly outlines all of the many programs and services out there for our older Islanders, and how to access them,” said Minister Doug Currie, Co-Chair of the Seniors’ Secretariat. “The feedback we’ve received has been tremendous. Seniors and their families really appreciate the straightforward way the Guide provides them with the information they need.”

“We’re very pleased with the response to the Seniors’ Guide,” said Anna Duffy, Co-Chair of the Seniors’ Secretariat. “Seniors are finding that it’s a very convenient way to find the answers to questions they might have about housing, their health, even their legal rights.”

Printed copies, in English and French, are available by calling the Seniors toll-free line at 1-866-770-0588. You can also get one online through the seniors website at or at Access PEI sites across the Island.
