Program for Seniors

Better Together Program for Seniors

We are pleased to announce that we have received funding under the Government of Canada’s New Horizons for Seniors Program for our project Better Together. This federal Grants and Contributions Program supports projects that are led or inspired by seniors who are making a difference in the lives of others in their communities. The funds will be used to support the 'physical and mental well-being' of the older adults in our community who may be at risk of social isolation.

Thank you to the Government of Canada’s New Horizons for Seniors Program and for the funding support provided to Centre for Skills. It will make a significant impact and difference in the lives of seniors in our community. For more information, visit New Horizons for Seniors Program – Community-based projects.
