Strathcona County WE Seniors 

As part of the Seniors Supports and Services Project, Strathcona County initiated an Invitation for Applications for a non-profit, senior-serving organization to establish operations in Strathcona County and provide services for older adults, including opportunities to connect, engage, and access the information, supports, and programming. The Westend Seniors Activity Centre was chosen as the successful applicant.   

You can learn more about the Westend Seniors Activity Centre by visiting their website
