Seniors make significant and valuable contributions to their families, communities and society. Our government remains committed to empowering seniors across Canada so they can contribute to and share in the prosperity of the country.
I am proud to share that over $200,000 has been given to 10 organizations (the Abbotsford House at the Glebe Centre, Alliance des Producteurs Francophones du Canada, Canadian Association of Family Resource Programs, Centretown Community Health Centre, Dart Coon Club of Ottawa, Jaku Konbit, OKES, Ottawa Chinese Community Service Centre, Ottawa Sui Yi Multicultural Arts Academy, Rwanda Social Services and Family Counselling, and the Somerset West Community Health Centre) in Ottawa Centre through the New Horizons for Seniors Program.
Our community is at its best when all citizens have the opportunity to reach their full potential and the contributions of every segment of society are valued. With this funding, organizations will provide programs that enable seniors in Ottawa Centre to maintain social ties, and share their knowledge, skills, and experience with others.
If you or someone you know is interested in learning more about the programs being offered, I encourage you to contact the organizations directly.
