What we're about

```
Welcome to the seniors 55+ online community managed by the Loyal Canadian Academy. Offering a safe and diverse space for seniors to connect to each other.

This online group was created as part of the Empowering Seniors online program which you can find more information on our website.
This group is designed to encourage seniors to engage in online social activities using digital technology.
For any communication between members, please be respectful to other seniors. Also, please note that we are not responsible for any communication between members.

IMPORTANT

  1. Please note that we have "no show policy". By joining this group, you agree and accept that after no shows for two workshops that you did RSVP, you can not RSVP for any other workshops to give more equal opportunities for other members to join.

  2. Please note that after two no shows for any online workshops, you may be asked to rejoin the group when you can attend online workshops.

Please check how we are supporting seniors through empowering seniors online programs (Funded in part by New Horizons for Seniors Program Grant).
