Seniors make significant and valuable contributions to their families, communities and country. Through the New Horizons for Seniors Program (NHSP), the Government of Canada continues to meet the needs of seniors by supporting initiatives that help them stay active and involved in their communities.
Today, Kim Rudd, Member of Parliament for Northumberland—Peterborough South, on behalf of the Honourable Filomena Tassi, Minister of Seniors, announced $18,650 in New Horizons for Seniors funding for A Gift of Art in Newcastle to assist with a Seniors Drop-In Outreach Centre. The Outreach Centre will allow seniors to participate in arts and culture workshops that support social inclusion and participation activities specific to seniors.
Funding for these projects is being provided by the Government of Canada’s New Horizons for Seniors Program (NHSP), which fosters social inclusion and engagement of seniors by encouraging them to share their knowledge, skills and experience to stay active and engaged.
“Through the New Horizons for Seniors Program, the Government of Canada is providing a wide range of opportunities for seniors to participate in meaningful activities that nurture their personal growth and foster community vitality.”
