Welcome to the GWSA

The Guelph Wellington Seniors Association is one of the largest seniors organizations of its kind in Canada, providing diverse programs, activities, and services to Guelph and Wellington County. We are an active participant in the Older Adult Centres Association of Ontario (OACAO), and a member of the Guelph Chamber of Commerce. The GWSA partners with the City of Guelph in the operation of the Evergreen Seniors Community Centre, a state-of-the-art recreation facility. We  also operate in other locations, including the West End Community Centre.

The Evergreen Centre

This state-of-the art facility offers an amazing place to gather and participate in a range of programs and services. It includes a large auditorium, kitchen, library, computer lab, Board room, and meeting rooms for activity groups and committees. Hundreds of volunteers make it happen.

Programs for Adults 55+

We offer dozens of activities and programs to promote learning and strengthen our minds and bodies while encouraging social interaction.  Activity Groups are open to all GWSA members. We have groups interested in Sports, Crafts & Leisure, Card and Board Games, Active Wellness, and Lifelong Learning. 

Our diverse range of services includes the chef’s offerings from the Bistro 683 restaurant, personalized Computer Mentoring, our Book Nook library, and much more.
