Who We Are

learn for fun

Canterbury ElderCollege is a not-for-profit organization dedicated to the principle of lifelong learning by offering courses that are useful, sociable and entertaining for older adults who wish to enrich their lifestyle through active involvement. With no homework, no exams, no pressure we encourage lifelong learning to enrich a long life!

ElderCollege was founded as a subsidiary of Canterbury College in 2011 and has since grown rapidly to offer nearly 100 courses each semester throughout Windsor, Essex County, and Chatham-Kent County. The program provides an opportunity for seniors to teach as well as to learn. The Instructors, Course Managers, and Curriculum Committees are entirely voluntary, and truly give life to our program! Offering courses in 10 remote campuses throughout the region, ElderCollege offers an outlet for those age 55 and better to contribute to the social and cultural development of their own communities.

We rely on your support

ElderCollege could not exist without volunteers, donations, and in-kind support. Learn more about how you can help keep education moving forward.
