About this event

Billy Pang, MPP for Markham-Unionville, introduced his second Private Member's Bill in the Legislative Assembly, aimed to acknowledge senior volunteers across Ontario. The Senior Volunteer Appreciation Week Act, 2021, sets to proclaim the first seven days of June in each year as Senior Volunteer Appreciation Week. During that seven days, Ontarians who interact with a senior volunteer are encouraged to wear a yellow-coloured item to display their appreciation.

An estimate of over half a million seniors in Ontario volunteer, both formally and informally. Activities may take place in familial settings such as providing childcare for family members or through formal volunteer settings in the health, educational, religious or entrepreneurial sectors.

Volunteering has demonstrated positive benefits for seniors. In addition to providing a sense of accomplishment and belonging to the community, volunteerism can also reduce social isolation while providing an opportunity to share and build on their life experiences during their retirement years.

“I hope that through this Private Member's Bill, it will further strengthen the relationship our communities have with our senior volunteers and encourage our seniors to continue volunteering,” Pang said. “I look forward to speaking more about Bill 270 in the Legislative Chamber, and sharing the Bill to constituents of Markham-Unionville and communities all across Ontario.”

Objectives of the Consultation:

• Seek public feedback regarding the Bill; and

• Answer questions attendees may be having regarding Bill 270.
