Seniors make significant and valuable contributions to their families, communities and society. That is why the Government of Canada remains committed to empowering all Canadians, including seniors, to contribute to and share in the prosperity of the country.
On May 10, 2017, the Honourable Jean-Yves Duclos, Minister of Families, Children and Social Development, highlighted the New Horizons for Seniors Program (NHSP) 2017–2018 Call for Proposals for Community-Based Projects that will help seniors stay active, engaged and informed.
The NHSP plays an important role in supporting partnerships that provide older Canadians with opportunities to share their knowledge, skills and experiences with others in their community.
This is an opportunity for seniors in Saint Boniface – Saint Vital to benefit from projects funded through the NHSP. The NHSP call for proposals, open until June 23, 2017, is seeking proposals for projects led or inspired by seniors. Organizations are invited to apply for funding for projects that promote positive aging and empower seniors to initiate and participate in activities that benefit the community. Eligible organizations can receive up to $25,000 in project funding.
The government recognizes the remarkable contributions that seniors have made over the years and continues to take measures to ensure they enjoy the fulfilling lives they deserve. By investing in NHSP community-based projects which help foster partnerships with local governments, institutions and organizations, the government is reinforcing its commitment to deliver positive change and improve the lives of seniors.
