Seniors Centres Without Walls

Enjoy some of our great seniors programs from the comfort of home!

We are launching a free and interactive telephone-based initiative on June 1 to safely connect seniors 50+ to other seniors from the comfort of their homes. Seniors Centres Without Walls (SCWW) will be a series of 30 to 60-minute multi-person phone conversations covering various topics that will start at 10 a.m. Monday to Friday.
