New Horizons for Seniors Program (NHSP)

NEW HORIZONS FOR SENIORS PROGRAM

DEADLINE TO SUBMIT AN APPLICATION WAS JUNE 22, 2018.

Empowering seniors, encouraging them to share their knowledge, skills and experience with others in the community, and enhancing seniors’ social well-being and community vitality are goals of the New Horizons for Seniors Program (NHSP). The Program provides grants and contributions funding for projects led or inspired by seniors who want to make a difference in the lives of others and in their communities.

The Program has five objectives:

The Program has two funding streams:

  1. Community-based grants that are either for activity-based or capital assistance projects.
    • Community-based projects are eligible to receive up to $25,000 in grant funding per project for up to one year.
    • NEW THIS YEAR: Organizations have the option of applying for a small grant up to $5,000 under the community-based funding stream. This pilot is targeted to organizations that have not received funding within the last 5 years (including the 2012-2013 NHSP Call for proposals).
  2. Pan-Canadian grants and contributions to support innovative projects that create a significant impact in communities and invest in large initiatives that meet the growing social needs of seniors.

Pan-Canadian projects are eligible to receive up to $750,000 for up to 3 years, to address the social isolation of seniors through social innovation approaches, partnerships and a focus on outcomes. This program is complemented by a range of policies, programs and services targeted at seniors, such as the Canada Pension Plan, Old Age Security and the National Seniors Council.
