Register now for ElderCollege fall semester


ElderCollege is a national organization designed for mature adults 55 and over who are looking for a unique community of adult learners. There are no exams, no grades and no pressure.

The Comox Valley ElderCollege (CVEC), run completely by volunteers, is starting its 15th year of operation. With over 900 members, it is one of the largest ElderCollege programs in Canada. As a program of North Island College, most courses are held on campus, giving members access to the college library and computer lab.

The courses are led by more than 140 volunteers who appreciate the unique opportunity to share their passions, experiences and knowledge with others. Courses give members an opportunity to learn something new, meet new people and participate in life-long learning.

ElderCollege offers two semesters per year, one in the fall (October-November) and one in the winter (February-March). Each semester includes general courses (four  to eight weeks), Saturday Lecture Series (eight weeks) and short courses (one or two days).

Fall semester starts the first week of October. An Information Forum will be held on Saturday, Sept. 20.

Registration for courses will start on Monday, Sept. 22.

Information and details are available at  as well as in the college newsletter. Copies will be available in local libraries, senior centres and at the college.

Call 250-334-5000 (local 4602) for more information.
