 ''The South Asian community is the fastest growing visible minority group in Toronto (having grown by 40% since 1996). Studies show that a large percentage of residents within this community are living in poverty and fall into the low-income category. Given this context, there is a demonstrated need to provide older adults with information about their rights and how best to access services and supports they might need.
