We were honoured to welcome the Premier of Ontario, Dalton McGuinty to Savaria in Brampton on November 16th. With the background hub-bub of our manufacturing plant, the Premier talked about the new healthy home renovation tax credit program. We were also pleased to welcome Linda Jeffrey, MPP Brampton Springdale who accompanied the Premier on the tour.
Offering up to $1500 on the first $10,000 of home renovations for seniors living in Ontario, the new program promises to help seniors stay in their homes longer, avoiding the move to healthcare facilities sooner than needed. Since many aging adults suffer from mobility issues such as knee and hip problems, adding a stairlift or a platform lift can be the best way to remain at home - the place most people would prefer.
Mr. McGuinty toured the Savaria showroom and manufacturing plant and shook hands with many of our employees as he went. It was a great opportunity for Savaria staff to feel proud about the kind of products we make.
