Activities

Fall 2020 Programs

We have adjusted program offerings and the way activities are operated due to the pandemic. Click here to view our Fall 2020 Catalogue.

CLSA offers a diverse range of activities to suit your interests. We invite you to come and hone your music skills, brush up on your Spanish, practice your brushstrokes in art class, discover something new at a general-interest talk, or boost your physical activity in a fitness class. There is always something new to learn!

Our catalogue is your go-to for all current activity information. If you don't see something offered here, your CLSA membership gives you access to 10+ other seniors centres' programming around the city.

Program Cancellation Policy

If it is necessary for CLSA to cancel a program, you will be notified prior to the program start date. In this situation, refunds or credits will be issued to your account. Courses may be cancelled due to low enrolment, extreme weather, instructor unavailability, and facility maintenance.
