Situated in beautiful Moody Park, Century House was officially opened on July 23, 1958 by Her Royal Highness, Princess Margaret and has been serving the community since. One of the oldest municipally run seniors centers in Canada, Century House and Century House Association have been working together to provide activities for seniors since that day. The city owns the building and the land and pays the staff and for the maintenance, upkeep and operations of the building. The volunteer-driven Century House Association works together with the staff to provide activities and programs for all the members to enjoy and utilizes volunteers to run dozens of drop in activities every week.
Century House has undergone a number of renovations and face lifts over the years, most recently in 2010 with the addition of a dedicated Youth Center to the back of the building. Not only has this led to more opportunities for intergenerational activities but it has also allowed our members to enjoy the use of an exercise room, computer room and small gymnasium when the students are in school.
We continue today as a leading-edge seniors centre that takes a holistic approach to its service delivery. The Active Living Guide and The Clarion, our monthy brochures, outline the diverse services that we provide to adults over 50 to increase their quality of life and independence with life enriching opportunities in fitness, wellness, education, language skills, arts, music, games and counselling.
