Amplifying Voices is a video project that explores the lives and realities of six seniors who receive meals-on-wheels from Santropol Roulant.

Meet the characters: Our six stars share a bit about who they are, where they come from and what they’re about.

Kateri Décary, Meals-on-Wheels Director at Santropol Roulant, tells us a bit about the meals-on-wheels clients.


Who participated? Santropol Roulant’s meals-on-wheels clients and volunteers collaborated to create these videos. While the clients provided the content by sharing their rich stories and intimate details from their everyday lives, many volunteers of all ages interviewed, filmed and edited the videos.

Why watch? Meet Alda, Augustine and Anne. Get to know Edgar and his dancing marionettes, Jan’s idea of how his neighbours should treat him, Rosanne and her orchids and her view of seniors.
