New Horizon Pan Canadian projects

The New Horizons Pan-Canadian grants and contributions support innovative projects that create a significant impact in communities and invest in large initiatives that meet the growing social needs of seniors. The Pan-Canadian 2015-2016 call for proposals focused on projects that help to reduce social isolation among seniors.
