Join us at your local recreation centre and explore the new 55+ programs just for you - It’s Your Day!

What

Funded in partnership with the Ontario Sport and Recreation Communities Fund, 55+ It’s Your Day provides older adult opportunities to participate in physical movement programs, fitness classes, and educational workshops. Four locations will host a dedicated 55+ Day with a variety of drop-in and registered program options, once a week for approximately one year.

Who

For patrons ages 55+

Why

Our goal is to ensure older adults can recreate in a variety of environments while building social connections with fellow patrons.

How

Registered programs will be running on a 4-week basis and will allow a portion of the patrons to participate on a drop-in first come, first serve basis. Patrons can access drop-in programs through the use of the following memberships:

  • Senior Participation Pass $41.62/ year
  • Senior Centre Membership $32.25/year. Visit your local Senior Centre to purchase.
  • First visit is free!
