Who We Are

We are Centre for Community Education and Wellness Programs located in Mission BC

Modeled on the concept of what is now called an “ElderCollege” we provide active living and healthy aging programs for adults.

Our Learning:

  • Enhances quality of life
  • Provides a forum for sharing information and knowledge
  • Promotes mental and physical well being
  • Provides opportunities to continue lifelong learning pursuits

Our History

For 30 years, Lifetime Learning Centre Society has provided active living and healthy aging opportunities through its community and general interest adult education programming. We serve not only for Mission’s older adults, but anyone interested in intellectual and wellness pursuits.

The Centre offers a wide variety of programs and invites you to become one of our active members. Annual fundraisers such as our Fashion Show, Walkathon and Golf Tournament bring together participants, volunteers, and much community support.

Lifetime Learning Centre is a non-profit organization, and all monetary donations are tax deductible.  Join us in celebrating a quarter century of intergenerational activities, healthy aging, and productive partnerships in Mission. We look forward to our next milestone as we promote an elder-friendly community and programs that enrich our lives.

One of our new members said: “Who could believe one could grow after one has passed the 80 year mark? I did.” .

Our Mission

Lifetime Learning promotes active living and healthy aging for older adults and others by providing opportunities to continue lifelong learning pursuits through community and general interest adult education and wellness programs.  These programs enhance quality of life, improve general knowledge and provide opportunities for the citizens of Mission to remain mentally and physically active.
