About HPCP

The Older Adult Peer Connector Program was designed to improve access to information about community and support services for seniors in Hamilton. HPCP empowers older adult volunteers to provide information and referrals about community resources, support programs and services to peers, in order to support daily life and improve overall health and well-being. The HCoA Peer Connector Program is a partnership of the Hamilton Council on Aging, Hamilton Public Library, and Information Hamilton. The program is generously funded by the Ontario Trillium Foundation.
