In April 2008, Carol Banez, Teresita Bautista and May Amparado founded the Scarborough Ontario Seniors Association (SOSA). On May 23, 2008, SOSA was officially incorporated as a non-profit organization with the Ministry of Industry.
Since its inception, SOSA has provided many seniors a place to build new relationships, engage in activities and create community.
