The Lifelong Learning program at Canmore Seniors Association aims to enrich the quality of life for seniors in the Bow Valley by providing intellectual stimulation, promoting healthy lifestyles and fostering social interaction.
We welcome occasional non-member guests, but to enjoy regular attendance, please become a member of the CSA.
Funding for this non-profit program comes from voluntary donations at the door.
Lifelong Learning sessions run through the fall, winter and spring at Creekside Hall, Canmore Seniors Centre, on Monday afternoons. Details are available on the CSA’s weekly newsletter, our Home Page, or noticeboards.
Reprints of some past presentations are available online:
- Dr. Martin Tweeddale: End of life – March 9, 2015
- Dr. Carrie Scarff: hearingloss
- Gail Smillie: The Aging Brain: “Neuroscience Proudly Over the Hill” – October 1, 2018
- Tim Giese: The World Hates Plastic Waste – April 8, 2019
A facilitated small study group meets regularly to discuss topics selected by the group. For more information contact Laureljpaterson@gmail.com
