Seniors' Services

Social Interaction and Lessing Isolation

In communities around Canada, there is a high need for resources and services for the quickly growing seniors' population. In Rexdale, more and more seniors from diverse cultural backgrounds, for many reasons, currently have limited access to community support and activities. Increasingly, immigrant and ethno-cultural seniors struggle with isolation caused in part by financial limitations which prevent them from living vivid social lives within the community. Their feelings of isolation can increase their risk of developing depression, or reduce their self-esteem and sense of worth to the community. Rexdale Women's Centre's Ethno-cultural Senior's Program offers many activities and for ethno-cultural seniors in their own language. In addition, seniors engage with other seniors from many different cultures, sharing views, ideas, values and traditions and learning new skills.

We offer:

  • Yoga / Fitness Class
  • Computer and Internet Training Classes
  • Civic Engagement involving Community Matters
  • Evening Social Events and Activities
  • Community Forums on issues related to Ethno-cultural Seniors
  • Sewing classes
  • Toronto Challenge Events / Walks
  • Intergenerational Group
  • Art and Craft Classes
  • Ethno-cultural Seniors Social Recreational Groups
  • Leadership and Mentoring Programs for seniors
  • Dance Programs
  • Educational workshops on Topics of Interest to Seniors
  • Excursions and Summer trips
  • Information on Community Resources and Services

There are many seniors' groups for individuals from different backgrounds. We have many active and vibrant social-recreational groups.
