Pan-Canadian Projects Under the New Horizons for Seniors Program

December 11, 2018

OTTAWA:  Jim Eglinski, Member of Parliament for Yellowhead, is encouraging eligible organizations in his riding interested in receiving contribution funding from the Pan-Canadian stream of the New Horizons for Seniors Program (NHSP), to apply for $500,000 to $5 million for a project consisting of a three to five-year collective impact initiative.

Pan-Canadian project funding supports multi-year projects using collaborative and innovative approaches to address seniors’ issues. Organizations can apply for projects up to five years duration under the pan-Canadian stream.

The pan-Canadian stream will support the development and implementation of Collective Impact plans to increase the social inclusion of seniors.

The Program has five objectives:

  • build the collective capacity of organizations to recognize and address barriers to social inclusion faced by seniors;
  • promote improved access to information, programs and services for seniors to enhance their social inclusion within their communities;
  • support action research to better understand effective approaches for increasing the level of social inclusion of seniors in their communities;
  • develop innovative approaches to engage and retain senior volunteers to improve their social inclusion in their communities; and
  • address systemic barriers that contribute to the social exclusion of seniors.

The deadline is January 21, 2019.
