Seniors Program


The Little Mountain Neighborhood House provides activities and workshops for seniors to connect them to the community. We offer a variety of recreational, social and cultural activities that support the maintenance of a healthy mind, body and spirit for seniors. The programs encourage language learning and provide enhanced information such as translated social and health resources.

Seniors provide leadership in the development and delivery of these programs and activities. The various activities, outings and workshops help newcomer seniors feel comfortable in their new country.

These programs are funded by the BC Immigrant Integration Branch, Ministry of Jobs, Tourism and Skills Training, United Way of the Lower Mainland, with capital funding through New Horizons Canada, and the BC Gaming Branch. These programs are in partnership with the Hillcrest Community Centre, SUCCESS and many other community organizations.

Please get membership at Little Mountain Neighbourhood House to enjoy the whole year of excitement and fun.

For more information or to register for the programs, please contact Wen at 604-879-7104 ext.321
