New Horizons for Seniors Program (NHSP) Funding Information and Grant Writing Sessions

The New Horizons for Seniors Program (NHSP) helps to ensure seniors will benefit from, and contribute to, the quality of life in their communities through active living and participation in social activities.

In anticipation of the next NHSP Call for Proposals, the Government of Canada will provide information to help you with the preparation of your application. Please find attached the list of New Horizons for Seniors Information and Grant Writing Sessions.

Through NHSP your organization may be eligible to receive a grant up to $25,000 per year.  Based on the most recent Call for Proposals, projects must be led or inspired by seniors and address one or more of the following five program objectives:

  • promoting volunteerism among seniors and other generations;
  • engaging seniors in the community through the mentoring of others;
  • expanding awareness of elder abuse, including financial abuse;
  • supporting the social participation and inclusion of seniors; and
  • providing capital assistance for new and existing community projects and/or programs for seniors.
