Ottawa is a great city with so much to offer. There are many options for entertainment and activities geared toward Ottawa's retired population. We have compiled a list of service provider's, clubs and activities, so whether you are new to the area, or newly retired there's something for everyone!
Seniors play an important role in the life of our community. As our population ages, the City is responding to the needs of seniors in many ways – by working on the range of housing options open to them, providing more options to help them remain independent in their homes and in their communities, improving transportation, promoting healthy active living, looking at how we communicate with seniors and their caregivers, and encouraging seniors participation.
Ottawa area Legions offer many resources dedicated to recreation and support for seniors and older generation adults. Cards, darts, dances and many more activities can be found in the calenders for each month on the wesites. Home support systems are also readily available online. If you would like more information please contact us or your local legion listed below.
Regular hours are 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Monday to Friday, but facilities are also often available in the evening for social events such as card games, concerts, dances and more.
