New federal government funding for seniors living in south Winnipeg will create opportunities to volunteer, take part in social activities and mentor younger generations.
Ottawa is providing $58,300 to Pembina Active Living 55+ (PALS 55+), Dakota Community Centre and Woodturners Association of Manitoba for their projects under the New Horizons for Seniors Program.
PALS 55+ will receive financial support for equipment to provide new cooking classes and Dakota Community Centre will receive financial support for equipment to provide a new computer class and a media training program for seniors.
“By supporting New Horizons for Seniors Program projects, we are acting to ensure that seniors maintain a good quality of life and continue to be active members of their communities,” said Winnipeg South MP Rod Bruinooge.
