About Wilson Seniors

For those of you who hold an annual Wilson Seniors membership ($18.75), as of March 16, 2020 your memberships have been put on hold. As we move forward with a gradual return to programming and can once again provide you with the benefits the membership has to offer,  it will then be reactivated. Please note that once you register for a program your membership will be automatically reactivated.

All programs follow current Provincial Health Orders and as we gradually reintroduce senior’s dedicated programming, pre-registrattion is required for all programs including drop-in activities. This is to ensure we stay within the maximum attendance numbers and ensure health and safety of all.

Wilson Seniors Advisory Board

Wilson Seniors Advisory Board is a dedicated group of volunteers working with Wilson Seniors members and City staff to develop programs and events that promote and enhance the well-being of “Seniors” in the community of Port Coquitlam.

In addition to being advocates for programming and reducing social isolation for seniors, the Board raises funds that go back to the seniors’ community through Farmers Market Coupons, Christmas hampers and other community initiatives and social events. During the pandemic, members of the Advisory Board have reached out to seniors in the community through the phone buddies program to provide assistance and support to those in need. Please visit the Wilson Seniors Advisory Board website here: portcoquitlamseniors.com and follow on Facebook for more information.

New Volunteers are always welcome. If you would like to be involved with the Advisory Board, please put your name forward.
