Grants for seniors centres and programs

The City is active in providing services and support for our growing seniors population.

Council provides operating funding to Vancouver's Community Centres, and annual grants to help Neighbourhood Houses and community-based seniors' groups and programs.

Groups the City assists include, among others:

  • 411 Seniors Centre
  • West End Seniors Network
  • South Granville Seniors Centre
  • SUCCESS Seniors Quality of Life

The result of this funding is a diverse array of outreach initiatives, peer counseling programs, and culturally inclusive programming for seniors.
