Membership

More than 800 seniors join the West End Seniors’ Network each year. Seniors can join at any time by dropping in to Kay’s Place or Barclay Manor, or mailing in the application form found in our newsletter and the bottom of this page. Membership is required to participate in our activities and meetings, but is not required to access our services, drop-in for a coffee at our centres, or attend our annual Strawberry Festival.

All seniors and those assisting them are welcome to drop into Kay’s Place, our Information and Referral office located in the Denman Place Mall (1030 Denman Street), to learn about a large number of community services and access a wide range of information and benefits of interest to seniors.
