Dr. Samir Sinha Final Report "Living Longer, Living Well"

Publication/Event Date: 
Thursday, October 15, 2015

Hello All,

As you are aware, Dr. Samir Sinha was appointed in May 2012 by the Minister of Health and Long-Term Care to lead the development of a Seniors Strategy for Ontario. Dr. Sinha was tasked to develop a report and recommendations by consulting broadly with service providers, older Ontarians and their families, LHINs, municipal leaders, associations, consumer groups, and other stakeholders. The thoughtful guidance and expertise shared by all stakeholders who participated in the consultation process helped to shape and influence Dr. Sinha's final report Living Longer, Living Well.  

I would like to thank Dr. Sinha for his leadership, contributions, and dedication in bringing thousands of Ontarians together to help develop a very comprehensive report which sets the foundation for a Seniors Strategy for Ontario.

The full report, Living Longer, Living Well is now available in both English and French on the Ministry's website at:



The report is also linked to our main health.gov.on.ca page under "more news":



The ministry is excited to move this work forward and has been actively reviewing the recommendations. We will continue to work with our key partners as we undertake next steps.  

Thank you for your important contribution to this effort, and your ongoing leadership and dedication to improving the health and well-being of older Ontarians.
