Local seniors may be missing out on available government benefits, but a seminar tomorrow in Parksville will provide much needed information on the subject, from a Service Canada guest speaker.

SOS is hosting the two free seminars at its Parksville location that will provide information to seniors on how to access available Federal Government programs, services and benefits. The two dates are tomorrow, March 4 from 10 a.m. to noon or Thursday, March 12 from 9 a.m. to 11 a.m. Registration is required and seating is limited. Please call 250-248-2093 ext. 239 to book your space. The SOS Child, Youth and Family Centre is located at 245 West Hirst Ave. in Parksville.
