May 19th, 2017

Federal funding is available now for local projects that help seniors stay healthy and involved in their communities.

The New Horizons Seniors Program (NHSP) is now taking applications for funding. Eligible projects can receive up to $25,000.

The call for proposals is open until June 23, 2017.

Organizations are invited to apply for funding for projects that promote positive aging and empower seniors to participate in activities that benefit the community.

The call for proposals was announced on Friday by MP Maryam Monsef, the Minister of Status of Women.

"Seniors contribute so much to our community," she stated in a press release.

"I encourage organizations to apply for NHSP funding to provide our seniors with the opportunity to share their knowledge and skills."
