55+ Centre (AML)

Welcome to the 55+ Centre for Older Active Adults!


The Al Mattison Lounge, or AML for short, is the name of the Adult 55+ Centre at Britannia. It is located across from the Information Centre, just east of the Britannia Library.

This space is a warm, friendly gathering place for Older Adults and is open 7 days a week for drop-in and programming, and chances are you'll meet others with shared interests.

Whether you want to Volunteer, register for a class, drop-in for lunch or just rest your feet awhile with a cup of coffee or tea, we welcome you!


The 55+ Centre will be closed January 27th for maintenance.
Our apologies for any inconvenience. Regular programs will resume on January 28th.
