Covid-19 Important Announcement

Be Happy, Be Healthy, Be Safe at home

  

As we navigate Covid-19, we are committed to keeping our members, staff and community safe

and healthy. This being our priority, our centre location at 5200 Finch Avenue East will cease to

function until further notice.

However, during this time when the centre location at 5200 Finch Avenue East is closed for

members, our dedicated staff and volunteers will continue providing services and support

through available virtual resources.

We will continue to offer the following services virtually:

 Our popular “wellness sessions” will be delivered every weekday (Monday to Friday)

through the virtual sessions (Zoom) 

 A weekly e-magazine with valuable information, anecdotes and fun stuff will be

circulated among members, who have their personal email addresses registered with the

centre

 Where practical, our committee members and staff are doing their part in reaching out to

members who are in need of guidance and support

 Sharing of information received from health authorities and other governmental

authorities

 We continue to collaborate with our partnership organizations, including the Canadian

Tamil Medical Association (CTMA), International Medical Health Organization (IMHO)

and South Riverdale Community Health Centre (SRCHC) to take advantage of any

available synergies

Please stay at indoors, practice social distancing and be safe. Together we can overcome

this adversity soon. We will overcome. Be positive.

Support us

  

Senior Tamils’ Centre of Ontario’s (STC) mission is to enhance well-being, reduce isolation, and instill a sense of belonging among seniors by mobilizing, socializing and providing support and advocacy. Our challenge in a changing society is the increase in the aging population, and to provide services to them. Also, there is an urgent growing need for funding supports for programs and services to address the immediate needs of our senior members.


Why donate

Senior Tamils’ Centre of Ontario is always expanding to meet the needs of our members and the community, yet some of the programs STC offers are not government funded. This leaves the most vulnerable community with unmet needs. Your support will help us to accomplish our goal and continue working towards the mission of Senior Tamils’ Centre of Ontario. Your support can be given in honor or in memory of someone special.


How to donate: 

· Cheques could be written in the name of Senior Tamils’ Centre and sent our STC office at 5200 Finch Ave. E, #203, Scarborough ON M1S 4Z2


· E transfer could be done through seniortamils@gmail. com (company name: Senior Tamils’ Centre)
