Sunshine Centres for Seniors is a non-profit organization providing social, recreational and health promotion day programs for seniors in the Greater Toronto Area. Our mission is to reduce social isolation, improve the health and well-being of older adults and to empower them to lead meaningful and connected lives in which they are engaged and participating in the community. Through our many centres including our Camp Sunshine program on Ward’s Island, we are committed to providing inclusive, interactive, and accessible programs that make a difference in the lives of seniors, promoting independence, a sense of belonging to a supportive community, and fostering a sense of purpose in life.
Compassionate, empathetic, friendly
Diversity, cultural values and beliefs, inclusiveness and fairness, promoting equality and upholding dignity
Autonomy and freedom of choice to participate however the seniors wish
Imagination and creativity, teamwork and striving for excellence
Responsibility, transparency, honesty, confidentiality, integrity, and safety.
Our team of committed volunteers and staff work together to ensure that every person who participates in our programs is treated with dignity and respect. The lives of our participants, our volunteers, and our staff are enriched through the fellowship, joy, and fun experienced at Sunshine Centres. We are proud of the work we do. We are rewarded by the knowledge that we make a difference to each other, to our participants, and to our communities.
We spread sunshine.
