Century House Association

 
Century House, a centre for people 50 and older, is run by the city’s Parks & Recreation Department.
But many of its activities are run by the volunteers of the Century House Association.
The Century House Association is a vital component in creating a leading-edge seniors centre that takes a holistic approach to its service delivery. Through its volunteers and many social and service clubs, the Association ensures that all older adults can connect, be revitalized and experience the joy of life-long learning.

Membership

When you buy a membership at Century House (required for many activities), you become a member of the Association. Membership is open to anyone over 50.  details
