● In brief, the new action plan offers:
    A one-stop website where seniors can find information about tax credits, drug coverage, powers of attorney, recreation programs, and more.
    An annual high-dose influenza vaccine, targeted to protect seniors, which will be available free of charge as part of the Ontario Universal Influenza Immunization Program, starting in the 2018-2019 flu season.
    Support for "naturally occurring" retirement communities by investing more than $15 million over two years for apartment buildings or housing developments where many seniors already live close to one another.
    More volunteering opportunities connecting seniors and youth, fostering learning and mentorship while reducing older people's risk of social isolation.
    5,000 new Long Term Care (LTC) beds over the next four years and 15 million more hours of nursing, personal support and therapeutic care annually for residents in LTC homes, as well as a 10-year plan to create more than 30,000 new beds over the next decade, working with the long-term care sector.

The Driveway Windrow Snow Clearing Program helps residents by clearing space in the snow windrow at the end of their driveway.

Completed applications and supporting documentation must be submitted in person.

What is a windrow?
A windrow is the snow left at the end of a driveway after a snow plow has cleared a road.

Windrow snow clearing will be completed after active snow plowing operations are finished.
Residents in this program should allow up to 36 hours after the end of a snow storm for windrows to be cleared. Clearing to bare pavement cannot be guaranteed.

Legends Row Mississauga's Walk of Fame is a celebratory ceremony recognizing special residents who have made impressive contributions to the betterment of Mississauga, the country, and in some cases, the world. Organizers say: "Through their actions and deeds, pride and spirit have been introduced to our community. They are special citizens, some widely known, others not household names, but the common thread amongst all of them is that their talents and accomplishments we hope will influence and inspire our leaders of tomorrow."

It is the highest honour a resident or former resident can receive. Past honorees include: Oscar Peterson, Don Cherry, Johnny Bower, Tommy Hunter, Paul Coffey, Paul Henderson, Fran Rider, Chuck Ealey, Dr. Colin Saldanha, and Dave Toycen. In attendance to welcome the Class of 2017 will be several dignitaries, past inductees and many proud family members.

"Simple. Delicious. Healthy. For everyone. These are the ideas upon which Sandy Pomeroy, head chef at Goodness Me!, Lifewatchers instructor, and now author, based her cookbook. Introducing Grain-Free Goodness, Sandy's first and very delicious book. Sandy has worked for Goodness Me! for close to 20 years, helping to inspire people toward healthy living with her recipes, classes, and enthusiasm for food. You've probably met her at some point, heard her name, or tried one of her recipes. Now, she has compiled all of her favourite recipes into one spot: Grain-Free Goodness.

Come hear Sandy's story, including why she got into healthy eating in the first place, how she started with Goodness Me!, what health challenges she has faced, and why she adapted the grain-free lifestyle. She'll show you the benefits of this type of diet, explain why she chooses to use certain ingredients, and you'll get to taste just how delicious this lifestyle can be with a few recipe samples from Sandy's book. After hearing about her food philosophy and seeing how easy and delicious healthy eating can be, you'll walk away thinking, 'I can make that'.

This event will include a class with Sandy Pomeroy, recipe samples, Q&A with Sandy, and book signing." ~ Goodness Me!
