Bringing together culturally diverse seniors to learn how to use digital technology.
Serving seniors living in Flemingdon, Thorncliffe Park, Crescent Town and neighbouring communities.
- Classes are running from July 9th - August 29th
- Tuesday & Thursday mornings from 10:00am - 12:00pm
- Location: 15 Gervais Drive, Toronto
The one-year project will pilot a community-based program for seniors to learn how to use tablets.
Using a senior’s social inclusion model, classes will provide a student/tutor ratio of three to one. The project will deliver a curriculum guide on how to use tablets in community-based learning programs for seniors: How to safely use tablets for communication (social media), accessing services for themselves and their families. This learner centred curriculum will be designed and developed in collaboration with all seniors involved in the project to ensure the needs of target population are addressed.

On April 24th, our local MP, Yasmin Ratansi, visited LEC to congratulate us on our latest project: New Horizons – Bringing Seniors Online. Bring Seniors Online was recently approved for funding through Service Canada, and will help us to better support seniors in our community by way of digital tablet technology training.
This project is funded by the Government of Canada and the New Horizons for Seniors Program - Ontario.
