Senior Services

In 2011, the baby boomers began turning 65. With nearly 9,000 residents over the age of 65 in Strathcona County, older adults are a growing demographic. By 2031, the number of seniors in Strathcona County is expected to double - resulting in seniors outnumbering the children and youth in our community, for the first time.

The Seniors Calendar is now available for 2018

The Seniors Calendar is offered free to older adult residents. The Calendar is truly a unique resource for seniors by seniors with all artwork provided by local older adult artists of Strathcona County. Each month provides helpful tips and information. Printed versions of the 2018 Seniors Calendar can found at:
