Seniors Active Living Centre Program 2023-2024
A Program for the Elderly Stay Active and Happy
Supported by Government of Ontario, under Ministry for Seniors and Accessibility, the Seniors Active Living Centre (SALC) Program is an annual initiative that funds about 300 established SALC programs across Ontario to provide activities and services to the province’s seniors and older adults. UTS Group not only safeguards your security but also supports social inclusion. Therefore, we would like to share useful information with communities in need.
Application Deadline: February 9, 2023, 5 p.m. ET
Only approved SALC operators are qualified to apply for the grant.
Every year, operators can submit applications to the ministry for two different types of SALC Program funding: Maintenance and Operating funding and Special Grants. The ministry will cover expenses spent between April 1, 2023, and March 31, 2024, for operators that follow the government fiscal year. The government will take into account expenses made between January 1, 2023, and December 31, 2023, for operators who use a calendar financial year.
SALC operators are requested to take into account one or more of the following program priorities while preparing their programming for 2023–2024 and to specify which one or more in their application.
- Introduce community services and initiatives to elderly people.
- Seniors in underserved communities or populations should have access to programming possibilities.
- Eliminate obstacles to accessibility for SALC programs and services.
In order to keep seniors active, autonomous, and engaged, SALC activities promote wellness, social engagement, and education. To satisfy the requirements of seniors in the community who might not feel comfortable returning to in-person programming or have trouble getting to a SALC program’s site, SALC operators are encouraged to broaden the scope of their programming and keep providing remote or virtual programming.
