About Wilson Seniors

We offer activities and events for those that are 60 and older targeting a variety of interests and skill levels.  Whether you come with a friend or want to make new ones, Wilson Seniors recreation is a great place to connect.  Try a sewing class, join the band, play table tennis and more.  Our kitchen also offers soups and sandwiches, fresh baked treats and coffee.  We look forward to meeting you.

All programs follow current Provincial Health Orders and as we gradually reintroduce senior’s dedicated programming, pre-registration 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 follow the Wilson Seniors Advisory Board 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.
