Welcome to our new website!
If you are interested in volunteering for ELECTION TO THE BOARD or want more information on what is required to be on our board of directors, give LORNE TETARENKO a call at:
We are now offering activities online live via Zoom and by attending them at the Qualicum Beach Community Hall. We have limited participation for each activity so that we are able to meet the distancing requirements. Please check the Activities Section for details.
As well, we have started to host smaller outdoor social gatherings. We recently held a Fun On The Farm Event at Morningstar Farms and Little Qualicum Cheese Works. The event was limited to 48 participants including the band and the volunteers who manned the barbeque. Everyone was able to safely enjoy the music and food, while staying safe, with seating for 4 beneath each of 10 canopies placed 10 feet apart. We look forward to bringing more activities. We will keep you informed by email as well as posting any updates on our website.

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.”
