The Membership Advantage
The Centre is open and even the bunnies are dropping in for a visit.
As well as offering a full agenda of activities from Monday to Saturday, we have added many exciting new choices. We ask that you pre-register for the activities in which you wish to participate to guarantee that space is available.
The telephone numbers for the activity leaders are on the activity schedule shown in the Activities section of this website.
Special events and trips are posted on the website on a regular basis under special events. We are currently offering numerous bus trips, an overnight trip with a dinner cruise on the Fraser River, and some fantastic scenic lunch and dinner flights.
We are continuing our virtual travel series, a weekly virtual travel program that provides something new every day. Join us as we visit historical sites, museums and learn the cultures and traditions of various regions of the world.
The program includes historical documentaries, music, and an opportunity to participate in healthy physical activities and relaxation sessions.
Our kitchen is in full operation so stop in for coffee, tea, goodies, or our daily lunch service.

It is an unfortunate reality that as seniors focus on their health amid the pandemic, con artists and scammers are looking to exploit their personal information and profit from these challenging times.
According to the Canadian Anti-Fraud Centre, more than 18,000 Canadians reported fraud in the first four months of 2020 – nearly half of the total number of cases for 2019. Canadians have lost $22.6 million to fraud.
Many of these scams target seniors directly. As Laura Tamblyn-Watts, the CEO of National Seniors’ Advocacy Organization CanAge said recently, the virus, combined with scamming attempts, represent “the perfect storm of targeting our vulnerable people.”
The purpose of the Qualicum Beach Seniors' Activities Centre is to:
Provide year round programs and activities to meet the recreational, cultural and social needs of the members
Provide settings in which seniors may feel at home among other members, where they can participate in activities
suitable for them and develop a feeling of belonging
