Adult 55+ Programs
55+ Team Welcomes you back!
There is an idea we keep close to our hearts at the 55+ Centre - that belonging to community enriches and supports us from infancy to old age. Seniors and Elders make our lives richer.
…and know a thing or two about life!
As we look to re-opening, coming back together and sharing space (not virtual) we thank you all, community, staff, Britannia Board and the unwavering Volunteers, Partner Agencies, Elders, Seniors and Youth.
While COVID19 worked its darndest (senior word), we have stayed connected. Elders, seniors, youth and families leaning on one another, listening and supporting. We’ve been online, in chatrooms and virtual classes, Phone-Tree Volunteers on weekly calls, Food Baskets packed and delivered, Cedar Hat Weaving, Quirk-e's meeting virtually writing Zines and our Crafters who shared so much of their time and talents with gifts to reminded us that we are cared for.
We are a resilient community grateful to live, work, play and gather on these Ancestral and Unceded Territorries of the Coast Salish peoples; the Sḵwx̱wú7mesh (Squamish), Stó:lō and Səl̓ílwətaʔ/Selilwitulh (Tsleil-Waututh) and xʷməθkʷəy̓əm (Musqueam) Nations - We are grateful to the Elders and their families who have shared with open hearts their stories, culture, visions and truths.
Through highs and lows we never could have imagined, it was a time we came together when so painfully, kept apart.

The Britannia 55+ Team would like to send out a BIG THANK YOU to our Volunteers! You're time and efforts are so appreciated and we are beyond grateful. Thank you for keeping our community supported and connected!
