SENIORS COMMUNITY SUPPORT
We connect you with community who will embrace you as their own and help you grow into the unique member and leader that you are in this vibrant and fascinating city.
We help the elderly spend their golden years in peace and joy through this community that helps them deal with the practicalities, as well as some unique challenges brought about by advancing years. We help Seniors access government pension/benefits, find housing, engage in volunteer work, and care for their health and wellness.

WE’D LOVE TO HEAR FROM YOU!
As a newcomer to Canada, my connection to KMC’s services has been very helpful. I never felt alone and always knew that I could reach out and get the necessary information for my new journey in a new country. Your webinars and involvement have helped me tremendously to build my own support network and meet new people who were going through the same experience as me.

Activities like trips to the farm, picking apples, going to mass outside of Toronto, and visiting many places in Ontario were both fun and educational. While us seniors belong a different era, KMC makes sure that we are up-to-date with many things and happy. Long live, seniors of Canada!
“I came to Canada as a live-in caregiver and KMC gave me guidance and direction from the time I arrived up to the processing of my work permit extension and permanent residence application, all the way through to sponsorship of my family and their arrival in Canada. KMC served us well all through these processes, and they did a wonderful job. Thank you so so much!”
