Seniors: Lunch and Chat

Seniors, lunch an chat: a variety of activities for Vanier seniors including those living at 300, Lacasse St. and at 280 Montfort St.

The Vanier CSC works closely with seniors and partners in order to develop a range of activities and services which counter isolation, increase the residents knowledge by connecting them to useful resources and encourage community involvement and particiation.  Since, the Vanier CSC has supported a variety of projects such as the construction of a community garden, a needs assessment, and the organization of the popular lunch-talks pertaining on a variety of themes presented by guest partners.  The residents gather in an inviting space, share a bowl of soup and a cup of coffee and take time to discuss and inform themselves on a variety of themes (ex: cyber-fraud, gambling etc.)

With new funding from the Ministry of correctional services and community security, the Vanier CSC now offers a program which inclures outings (ex.: plays and nature outings), intergenerational activities and a series of talks pertaining on themes in link with crime prevention and mental health.
