New Horizons for Seniors Program

The Federated Women’s Institutes of Ontario and the Erland Lee Museum Home are excited to provide a new way for seniors to volunteer their skills and knowledge - through our Digital Enrichment Initiative!

Thanks to funding from the Government of Canada’s New Horizons for Seniors Program, each month we will release educational and entertaining videos that everyone can enjoy from the comfort of their own home. There will also be opportunities for seniors to learn how to navigate various technologies.

Check out our latest video below and stay tuned for information on our upcoming programs!
