The Westend Seniors Activity Centre was founded as the Edmonton Self Starters Organization in 1978. 

For more than 25 years, this organization has supported seniors in west Edmonton providing social, recreation, health, fitness and special interest activities to help seniors remain active and vital. 
Westend Seniors gives seniors age 55 and up the opportunity to lead an active, healthy lifestyle. 

Every day the Centre is filled with seniors taking part in educational, recreational, and social programs - everything from art classes and card tournaments, to aerobics and computer classes.  Most importantly, Westend Seniors brings seniors together, giving them a place to socialize and share experiences, and making them part of a supportive community.


Our Mission
Our mission is "to contribute to the healthy aging of seniors by providing opportunities for involvement and active living". 


A nominal membership fee of $25.00 per year qualifies you for participation in all our programs, activities and services.  Our calendar year runs from January to December.  This nominal fee also allows us to enter you into our database, to update you on new programs and events and allows us to produce our newsletter.
