MP John Barlow: Submit your proposals for community based projects to support seniors


The New Horizons for Seniors Program is one of the many ways the Federal Government works to support seniors in our communitie­s across Canada. This program supports service organizati­ons that help seniors stay active and engaged in their communitie­s. It empowers them and enables them to expand their social network and explore new learning experience­s.

In support of this commitment, John Barlow, Member of Parliament for Foothills, announces the New Horizons for Seniors Program (NHSP) 2022-2023 call for proposals for community-based Projects.

“Our seniors play a fundamenta­l part in strengthen­ing our communitie­s and building our country. We will continue to find ways to improve the quality of life of our seniors and retirees so they can live out their years with the respect and dignity they deserve. The New Horizons for Seniors Program is designed to help seniors use their leadership, energy and skills to benefits their local community,” explained John Barlow, Member of Parliament for Foothills.

NHSP funding creates opportunit­ies for seniors to be more connected, supported and active members of their communitie­s. This year’s national priorities aim to do just that by focusing on projects that:

1. support healthy aging;

2. prevent elder abuse;

3. celebrate diversity and promoting inclusion; and

4. help seniors age in place. Through a simplified applicatio­n process, organizati­ons are invited to submit project proposals that help seniors move beyond the pandemic and continue to play important roles in their communitie­s.
