The West End Seniors’ Network offers our members programs, workshops, presentations, and events at Barclay Manor, offsite at other locations, outdoors, and virtually. These activities are a fun way to enjoy a hobby, learn, be physically and mentally active, and socialize with others.
All programs and events are by donation unless otherwise stated.
Programs and events are open to adults 55 years of age and older with a current West End Seniors’ Network membership. You are welcome to try an activity before becoming a member, space permitting.
For non-members, daily or weekly passes can be purchased from Barclay Manor reception:
$2.00 for a day pass
$5.00 for a week pass
For more information about becoming a member or renewing your membership and donations, please visit our membership page.
Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, WESN programs may be running with reduced capacities, paused, held outdoors, or running virtually (on Zoom or by teleconference). Register for all programs, events, workshops, and presentations to be notified of cancellations.
Masks are mandatory and proof of full vaccination is required to enter Barclay Manor. This is effective immediately and until further notice.
Please have your vaccine card and government-issued ID ready for the reception volunteer to check.
The status of programs and events and our hours of operation are subject to change.
Registration for participation in programs from January 4 – 31 is open on January 4 at 10:00AM. Registration for February 1 – 30 opens in late January 25.

Registration is required for all programs and events. Please note that virtual programs only require one initial registration – you do not need to re-register each month if the program runs virtually (on Zoom or by phone), unless specified.

Our Computer Lab is open for drop-in use. It is on the top floor of Barclay Manor and has 5 computers and a printer-copier-scanner available for members to use (fees apply).
Upon entering the Computer Lab, please write your name and when you arrive on the whiteboard. If all computers are in use and someone is waiting, there is a 30 minute time limit for the individual who has been present the longest unless someone is finishing up and offers their spot.
There is a printer in the Computer Lab that members may use while they are booked in the space. The printer prints on letter size (8.5” x 11”) paper in black and white. It can copy documents.
Printing is $0.10 per side. A fee collection box is located beside the printer. No change is provided.
If you require assistance with printing, please book an appointment with a Technology Coach.
If you require colour printing, please email your file(s) to [email protected] and ask for assistance.
While we avoid cancelling programs or events if we can help it, we need a minimum number of attendees to run each program and event. Register early if you are interested in attending and we will notify you if there is any change to the scheduling. Regular programs may also experience room changes for special events, which will be posted on-site.
We apologize for any inconveniences.
Thank you for working with us to help provide you with quality activities every month!
Note that some programs require signing a waiver prior to participating.
Participation in programs is at the discretion of the individual. Presentations and materials from external organizations or individuals may not reflect the views of WESN. Participant discretion is advised.
In addition to smaller seasonal events, the West End Seniors’ Network hosts these special events during the year. Our thanks to our many sponsors, without whom these would not be possible.
