Building on the success of the past four expos, the fifth North Lanark Seniors’ Expo promises to be a great success, delivering the kind of information that seniors, their families and caregivers seek. This expo is part of the lead organizer, Mills Community Support’s commitment to building an age-friendly North Lanark. The Seniors’ Expo will showcase the great strengths of our communities’ seniors while offering a one-stop showcase of goods and services available to seniors in North Lanark.

We offer a variety of diverse presentations in our “Speaker’s Corner,” on topics such as recreation opportunities and the Alzheimer’s Society’s services. With a Federal Election looming, all candidates for our riding will be invited to join us on September 10th to answer your questions. Stay tuned for a schedule of speakers and times to meet with individual candidates.

New this year is a change in our hours. In an effort to better serve family members who work, our hours have changed to 1pm to 8 pm. Food is available for purchase. Our venue remains the same, the Almonte Community Centre at 182 Bridge Street in Almonte.

The Seniors’ Expo has again received financial support from the Older Adult Centres’ Association of Ontario (OACAO) to help bring this event to North Lanark. Their help means non-profit organizations serving seniors can receive a free booth to promote their services. The expo is now only a month away so booths are quickly being booked. Gold Sponsors are Bayshore Home Health, Carleton Place Terrace by Symphony, and The Hub and Rebound. If you offer goods, services, or supports to seniors contact Jan Watson at or 613 256-1031 ext 39 to check on booth availability.
