Vaughan, Ontario – The Honourable Julian Fantino, Associate Minister of National Defence and Member of Parliament for Vaughan, hosted his second annual Resource Fair for residents of Vaughan this past Saturday, March 31, at the Vellore Village Community Centre.

“Our government is focused on the needs of seniors, and that is why I am pleased to see so many residents of Vaughan here today participating in this valuable event,” said Minister Fantino. “The purpose of this resource is to provide to our residents an opportunity to receive information and speak with individuals offering services that are necessary for our community.”

Over 400 residents of Vaughan participated between 9AM and 1PM in the Resource Fair, taking advantage of the information offered to them from 20 community groups. Participants enjoyed refreshments in the morning and a pizza snack at lunch.

“Our Member of Parliament Julian Fantino recognizes the need in our community for individuals and families to begin planning ahead. Never before has Vaughan had an MP who has been so active in our community, never before has Vaughan had an MP who has been as active as Julian at the local level supporting our community and never before has Vaughan had an MP like Julian Fantino who has delivered what he promised and more,” said Frank Domenichiello, a volunteer on hand that day.

The community representatives that participated that day were: York Regional Police, Vaughan Fire and Rescue, Service Canada, Canada Revenue Agency, Alzheimer’s Society, Villa Colombo Vaughan, Heart and Stroke Foundation, York EMS, Transit Mobility Plus, IC Savings, Scotia Bank, CHATS, Community Care Access Centre, Shoppers Drug Mart, Chartwell Valley Vista, Richview Manor, Investors Group, the Vaughan Community Health Centre and Caring Hearts.
