Program Description

The Seniors Wellness Program’s mandate is to help seniors connect with their neighbours through workshops, special events, and weekly social activities.

We also host many special events, such as a Holiday Luncheon in December, Lunar New Year, Mother’s Day Tea, and other holiday celebrations. Workshops range from comedy improv and hula dancing to financial literacy and fall prevention. We also hope to offer regular movie afternoons.
