- Fostering growth and development
- Creating partnerships with community based organizations and service providers
- Incorporating healthy active living into daily lifestyles
With the Okanagan weather attracting retirees to the area every year, it’s probably not a surprise to you that the population of seniors is increasing rapidly in Kelowna. Since 2005, when the City worked with a consultant to prepare a Seniors Services Strategy Report to address the future delivery of seniors programs and services - providing a series of recommendations to guide future service delivery and facility development – the City of Kelowna continues to address the changing needs of the community and takes your best interests to heart.
Join the fun and get active!
Throughout Kelowna you will find several Seniors’ Societies offering socialization and programs for various interests. Three of these societies utilize Multi-Age Centres owned and operated by the City of Kelowna. Choose from the monthly list of events in our Active Living Guide to find an activity that’s perfect for you!
