In February of 1968, a small group of seniors met with then-City of North Vancouver Mayor
Cates to discuss the feasibility of constructing a multi-service centre for seniors on the North Shore.
They were people of vision, and all agreed that such a place was much needed, so they set to the task
of making it happen. The Centre officially opened on September 22, 1973, after countless hours of
work by dedicated volunteers, including 165 planning meetings.
The federal and provincial governments provided significant capital funding to build the Centre
as did both the District and City of North Vancouver. And with the building process underway,
the Society turned to service clubs and private donors to equip the new Centre. From a small
group, we have grown into the largest seniors centre in North Vancouver. We now have more than
70 different programs and activities to offer – so come join us!
