Each year, October 1st is set aside to recognize the important contributions of Canadian seniors. Intended to coincide with the United Nations’ International Day of Older Persons, National Seniors Day gives us all an opportunity to pay tribute to the seniors who have helped to build our country and to raise awareness of their concerns.

There are many ways to celebrate this important occasion. Whether you’re attending a local event or spending some time with a senior you love, Federal Retirees wishes you a happy and healthy National Seniors Day!
