Free Seniors Seminar

Local seniors may be missing out on government benefits, and two seminars hosted by SOS on Oct. 5 aims to change that.
Thursday, Oct. 5, 2017 at both SOS locations, a Service Canada Representative will provide much-needed information on Federal Government programs, services and benefits. This is a very popular seminar and pre-registration is required, as seating is limited. The seminar will run from 9:30-11:30 am on Oct. 5 at SOS in Parksville (245 West Hirst Ave) and from 1:30-3:30 pm at SOS at Qualicum Commons (744 Primrose St.) Pre-register by calling 250-248-2093 ext. 239.
