New Horizons for Seniors Program Opens Call for Proposals

The Government of Canada has announced the launch of the 2019–20 New Horizons for Seniors Program (NHSP) call for proposals for community-based projects.

Quick Facts.

  • The NHSP supports projects that help improve the well-being and quality of life of seniors and foster social inclusion and engagement of older Canadians in all aspects of society.
  • Its 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. 
  • In addition, projects should focus on one of three national priorities:
    (1) preventing elder abuse and fraud, including measures to reduce crimes and harms against seniors;
    (2) supporting healthy aging in community and addressing dementia, including community supports and intergenerational housing; and
    (3) counteracting ageism in the workplace to promote labour market retention of seniors.
  • Projects can receive up to $25k for one year.
  • The deadline to apply is June 21.
