The CK Seniors Portal is presented by the Chatham-Kent Senior Advisory Committee (SAC).

We are a committee of Chatham-Kent Council comprised of older citizens and representatives of senior services agencies.   Our role is to educate and advise Municipal Council and community partners on issues and priorities relevant to senior citizens’ quality of life.

This portal provides seniors and family caregivers helpful information on a wide range of topics including: what is going on, where to get help, how to get involved and great stories about health and senior issues.

The SAC meets monthly at St. Andrew’s Residence, 99 Park St in Chatham.  These meetings are open to the public.
