Government of New Brunswick

The Healthy Seniors Pilot Project is a $75 million three year agreement between the Government of New Brunswick and the Public Health Agency of Canada jointly led by the Government of New Brunswick’s Department of Social Development and the Department of Health through the Aging Secretariat.

The Healthy Seniors Pilot Project will support a range of applied research initiatives to examine how governments, in partnership with the community and private sectors, can better support seniors in their homes, communities and care facilities.  This project will help us better understand the gendered impacts of an aging population, improve the quality of life for our senior citizens and help us lay the groundwork for the dissemination of evidenced-based best practices in supporting healthy aging for all Canadians.

Please note:
After receiving feedback from the research community, the deadline for project submissions is being extended to May 11, 2021. Applicants are free to submit prior to this date if they wish. We hope this extension will allow applicants to collaborate and to prepare robust applications.
