About Us

From its small beginnings in 1976 as a collaborative project between the Town of Canmore’s Family and Community Support Services and our founding members, Canmore Seniors Association today has over 850 members and runs a variety of programs and activities. The heart of the CSA is our Seniors’ Centre in downtown Canmore, supported by the Town of Canmore.

From pickleball to bocce, floor curling to cross country skiing – our outdoor and indoor sports cater to all abilities and fitness levels.  And if you’re looking to get physical, increase flexibility or mobility, our fitness programs with varying degrees of intensity, from very gentle to Get-Up-and-Go or even juggling could be the answer. For control, suppleness and calmness, try Hatha Yoga or Tai Chi. If dancing is in your blood – we provide opportunities for learning or practicing ballroom, Latin, Scottish and line dancing.

One of the best known CSA groups is the Meanderthals.  This group organizes and leads hikes into our splendid mountain backyard, with levels of ability ranging from the gentle D to the extra-challenging A‑rated treks.  To learn more, visit the Meanderthals page.  When the snow arrives, you can join CSA groups on the trails cross-country skiing and snowshoeing.

If your mind needs a workout, our Lifelong Learning Program organizes regular lectures and presentations on a wide array of topics: adventures, health, arts, legal matters and more. Click on the Lifelong Learning page for information. Other cerebral activities include mah-jongg, bridge and board games.

To learn more, explore the linked pages above, or stop by our welcoming drop-in lounge in Townside Hall for a coffee, tea and cookies, to meet friends or make friends.
