MPL is committed to serving older adults in Markham by helping you to stay active, healthy and engaged in the community.
It’s great to still feel connected while we are physically apart. That is why MPL has launched Keeping Connected - a phone check in service for our community! Sign up below for a friendly conversation with MPL staff weekly or biweekly. If you would prefer to register by telephone, please call Fred Whitmarsh at 416-450-4080.
