Government of Canada Launches Call for Proposals for Community-Based Projects to Support Seniors

Kim Rudd, Member of Parliament for Northumberland—Peterborough South, on behalf of the Honourable Filomena Tassi, Minister of Seniors, invites organizations to apply for funding for community-based projects as part of the New Horizons for Seniors Program (NHSP) 2019–20 call for proposals.

The NHSP is a federal grants and contributions program whose goal is to support projects that help improve the well-being and quality of life of seniors and foster social inclusion and engagement of Canadian seniors in all aspects of society.
The Program’s community-based stream supports activities that engage seniors and address one or more of its five objectives: volunteering, mentoring, expanding awareness of elder abuse, social participation and capital assistance. Organizations are invited to apply for funding under the NHSP’s three national priorities:

 preventing elder abuse and fraud, including measures to reduce crimes and harms against seniors;
 supporting healthy aging in community and addressing dementia, including community supports and intergenerational housing; and
 counteracting ageism in the workplace to promote labour market retention of seniors.

The 2019–20 NHSP community-based call for proposals is open until June 21, 2019. For details on how to apply, visit https://www.canada.ca/en/employment-social-development/programs/new-horizons-seniors.html.

“The Government of Canada deeply values the contribution seniors make to our country. We know that when seniors can fully participate in society, everybody benefits. That is why I am pleased to invite organizations to apply for funding through this year’s call for proposals.”
