ABOUT US

Gwen Secter Creative Living Centre is a multi-purpose senior centre that promotes the physical, mental, social, and spiritual well-being of older adults. We combat senior isolation and depression by offering programs at low-cost, and providing door to door transportation. We offer fitness and arts programs, weekly luncheons, events, entertainment, outings, and community programs to seniors in the Seven Oaks area and beyond. We encourage friendship and mental well-being though the programs, and promote volunteerism and peer support. At Gwen Secter Creative Living Centre, we strive to meet the needs of our community by providing a safe, inclusive, and lively environment for all.
