We are appreciative to New Horizons for Seniors Program – Government of Canada for supporting the development of our VIEW FACILITATOR Training Course.  

We are also very thankful to Canadian Heritage  – Government of Canada  for funding our one day Festival of Ideas in November 2022 through the RE-Engaging Audiences Grant 

We were very pleased and grateful to have Rozsa Foundation funding support to undertake research through Winter/Spring 2022, on our VIEW from the Inside Program that focused on different domains of well-being. Working with researchers from Sheridan Centre for Elder Research, we explored participants’ growth in resilience, sense of community, self-reflection and voice for their stories.

Many thanks to Ken Lee for allowing our use of his story
“The Gray Jay and the Magpie” for our online programming. 
As he writes:   
“I am impressed by your strong commitment to mental health and social inclusion.  I am just getting started as a new nurse, and there are times that I feel that our culture is too reliant on medications to address health concerns.  But it is the power of imagination and art that will be crucial to people’s overall health”.
