At Century House adults 50+ can explore opportunities to enjoy activities, programs, events and social connections within a welcoming and supportive community of peers. A key difference is that Century House supports members to live a more meaningful life by staying connected.
We use the tagline “Go! Get! Give!”
- GO – to an event, a class, a presentation, a trip (activity and involvement)
- GET – connection with peers and friends, get fit, learn a new skill, have fun (personal benefits)
- GIVE – help and support to others, service to the community (giving back)
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. It’s one of the oldest municipally run seniors centres 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 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.
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.
