Let’s help you get started!

To become a member, just come in and a volunteer at the reception will be glad to assist you. Everyone 55+ is welcome! You can sign up for a class or attend an event at the Active Living Centre (ALC). There is a fee structure for both Members (advantage) and Non-Members for all classes, programs, trips, events, and workshops.

Social Programs

Social programs are offered to members only and are held on an a weekly basis unless otherwise stated. Participants are required to sign up in advance. In order to participate in a social program, you are required to pay the fee listed under the program title.

Registered Programs

Registered programs have specific start and end dates listed in the program description and are offered to members of the ALC.

Non-Member Rates

Being a member of the ALC is not a requirement to register for a class, program, event or trip. However, a premium will be charged for non-members, and they may only register for a class once the session has begun; trips, workshops and events require prior sign up.

Dance and Fitness Classes

Please note that when you register for any dance or fitness classes, you will be required to complete a PARQ form and you may be required to provide a doctor’s note. Standardized consent forms are available in the Program Office.
