New Horizons Looking for Seniors Projects to Fund


Ottawa—Mark Strahl, Member of Parliament for Chilliwack-Fraser Canyon, is encouraging local organizations to answer the call for proposals by the New Horizons for Seniors Program.

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.

"New Horizons is looking for projects that are led and inspired by seniors," said Strahl. "Communities are strengthened when seniors are engaged in a meaningful way in their community."

The application deadline for community-based projects is June 29, 2012. For more information about the call for proposals, visit
