Government of Canada Launches Call for Proposals for Projects Led and Inspired by Seniors
May 09, 2012
Barrie, Ontario—Patrick Brown, Member of Parliament for Barrie, is encouraging organizations that work to promote the well-being of Canada’s seniors to apply for federal funding.
The 2012–2013 call for proposals for community-based projects under the New Horizons for Seniors Program launched on May 8, 2012 for all provinces and territories.
Organizations can receive up to $25,000 in funding per year and must address one or more of the program’s five objectives: volunteering, mentoring, expanding awareness of elder abuse, social participation and capital assistance.
“We know how important it is to provide meaningful programs and activities involving seniors,” said MP Brown. “This is just one more way we can help support organizations in their goal to promote and support the quality of life of Canadian seniors.”
“The New Horizons for Seniors Program helps seniors put their experience to use through volunteerism and mentorship,” added MP Brown. “By investing in these community projects, our government is improving both the quality of life for Canadian seniors and their neighbourhoods.”
The application deadline for community-based projects is June 29, 2012 for all of Canada, except Quebec. The Quebec call will close on September 14, 2012, to coincide with a provincial call for proposals. For more information about the call for proposals, visit www.hrsdc.gc.ca/seniors.
