New Horizons Seniors Program Grant
ODLAN is pleased to announce that we have received funding under the Government of Canada’s New Horizons for Seniors Program for our project Combating Digital Exclusion: Mobilizing Educational Resource to Remove Digital Access Barriers.
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 educate service providers on the challenges 2S-LGBTQ+ older adults experience when accessing remote service provisions.
