If your a homebody, you can relax with care-free living in one of our Phelps communities - bungalows built with you in mind, in mature neighbourhoods where pride of ownership is evident and there's enough room for family to visit and grand children to play. Watch the birds, read a book and of course sip Niagara wine in your private backyard.

In Good Company

You'll be in good company here with 'near-seniors' (50+ years) moving this way in order to downsize. "It's the active near-seniors who are making a difference all across Niagara, says Walter Sendzik, CEO of the Greater Niagara Chamber of Commerce. "We're seeing a lot of people coming from Toronto who are downsizing, people who are looking for a slower pace but close to the Greater Toronto Area. You can sell a home in Toronto for $700,000 and get a property [in some parts of Niagara] for $300,000. It's downsizing from the city but it's upsizing in the rural area."

If you're looking for a new hobby or groups to join, check out Senior Clubs and Legions in the area, like the Grimsby Seniors Club.These centres and clubs provide educational, fitness, recreational and social programs.


As a further benefit for seniors, the health-care system in our region is being renovated with new facilities to accommodate the population and services required. As well, "Niagara provides a range of services for seniors who want to keep active and stay in their home as long as possible... [there is] information and access to specialized programs, services and resources that help seniors live active, healthy and independent lives."

Did You Know?

The Ontario Senior Homeowners’ Property Tax Grant is a yearly grant that helps you with taxes on your property. 
Homeowners are also entitled to a tax break for renovating your home to better accommodate someone who is older than 65, or a person with a disability. "To qualify, the renovation has to help with mobility, access and function in the home, and reduce the risk of harm or injury for the individual."
