The Dundas InfoSpot

New “one-stop” kiosks are bridging the digital divide and making information more accessible to older adults. Responding to a community need, The Dundas InfoSpot for 55+ is a web-based computer application, curating information about programs and services in an age-friendly format. DundasInfoSpot

Led by the Hamilton Council on Aging, and supported by HCF, InfoSpot draws listings from Information Hamilton’s directory of community services. The kiosks use large touch-screen computers to ensure content readability, and wheelchair/scooter accessibility.  Users can also print their search results in an age-friendly font size.  The kiosks are installed at the Dundas Public Library and the Dundas Lions Memorial Community Centre where volunteers of the Dundas Active 55+ Steering Committee can assist InfoSpot users. In addition, InfoSpot is also accessible online from any computer.
