As you may know, the Government of Canada’s New Horizons for Seniors Program supports projects led or inspired by seniors who make a difference in their communities and in the lives of others.
The New Horizons for Seniors Program was launched in October 2004. Projects funded are helping seniors become active members of their communities by encouraging them to use their skills, wisdom and experience to benefit other people in their communities.
The New Horizons for Seniors Program is now accepting applications for community-based projects until June 23, 2017. Eligible applicants include not-for-profit organizations, municipal governments, band/tribal councils and self-government entities, research organizations and institutes, educational institutions, school boards/school districts, coalitions, networks and for-profit enterprises. See our website for other eligibility information: Canada.ca/funding-new-horizons-seniors-community.
