On March 27, the Minister of State for Seniors, the Honourable Alice Wong, announced a new stream of funding and a call for proposals through its New Horizons for Seniors Program. The call for proposals opens in May and will focus on reducing social isolation for seniors. Successful projects will be supported by Seniors SI, a program of the Foundation’s Innoweave initiative.
Seniors SI is designed to work in partnership with the New Horizons for Seniors Program and builds on the work of the National Seniors Council and its recent Report on the Social Isolation of Seniors 2013-2014.
