Ward 8 is lucky to have so many great seniors' facilities operating in our neighbourhoods. Organizations like the Kirby Centre, the Good Companions 50 Plus Club, Open Door Senior Fellowship, Bow Cliff Seniors and more offer great programming and services for those seeking to stay engaged and active.
In celebration of all that seniors bring to our city and community, this week (June 6 - 12th) is Seniors' Week! There are tons of events taking place all over the city. Some are specifically for seniors while others are for the whole family to enjoy. Learn more about Seniors' Week here
Also for seniors, new this property tax season, the Seniors Property Tax Deferral Program allows eligible senior homeowners to defer all or part of their property taxes through a low-interest home equity loan with the Alberta government.
The Seniors Property Tax Deferral
program and the Alberta government will pay all or part of your property taxes on your behalf. By providing you a low-interest loan that is secured against your home equity, the loan is repaid when you sell your house, are no longer eligible for the loan, or at any other time you choose.
