Regional Committees - New Horizons for Seniors Program

From: Employment and Social Development Canada


Due to the coronavirus disease (COVID-19) outbreak, there are changes to this program:

There are Regional Committees in each province and territory across Canada. The mandate of each group is:

  • to provide regional perspective
  • to help promote the program in their own community
  • to review and provide insight on funding applications for community-based projects
