Social isolation and loneliness affect more than one million older Canadians. Loneliness and social isolation foster serious social, mental and physical health challenges and a significant reduction in quality of life for older people and for their caregivers and communities.
Seniors Can! (Aînés Debout!) is a national grant program designed to help low-income seniors across Canada avoid isolation and loneliness and engage more fully with their communities. Through the generous support of the Founding Program Partner, Seniors Can! provides grants to local community partners of up to $10,000. Seniors Can! takes a wholistic approach to supporting senior inclusion and offers grants for three key areas: Well-Being, Innovative Programming, and Emergency Relief.
