Our programs and services touch people of all ages, all abilities and all cultures, and we are a flexible organization, responding to community need and encouraging people to take leadership roles in determining and providing community programming.

Since 1894, through a constantly changing landscape, Alexandra Neighbourhood House has been building healthy families and fostering diversity in a safe, scenic and vibrant community.

A group of enthusiastic, knowledgeable and creative older adults has been gathering to share ideas for upcoming projects and initiatives that will result in meaningful opportunities for older adults to engage, learn and contribute to their community.

So far, the primary focus areas are the arts, cultural and intergenerational exchange, and health and wellness. If you have ideas, there’s always room for one more. Call Jenn at 604-535-0015 ext 236.
