Sunrise would like to thank Service Canada - New Horizons for Seniors Program – Western-Territories Region, for the recent funding for our new 2021 Seniors Taxes and Benefits Program.
This funding enabled Sunrise to recruit and train senior volunteers for our Taxation and Benefits program. It also enables us to update and provide new technology to seniors to not only file their taxes, but to also provide technology so they can connect with family and friends.
