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.
