According to Census Data, The Blue Mountains is home to nearly 3,000 full-time seniors. We estimate that just as many seniors, if not more, call The Blue Mountains home on a part-time or seasonal basis. Seniors make up an important part of our community. Seniors in our community are active in volunteering, and show a great interest in the recreational, social and cultural fabric of our community. The following links provide helpful information and resources to help our Seniors live a full and satisfying life.
