The mandate of the Brockville 50+ Activity Centre is to enhance the lives of Brockville and area residents 50 years old and over, by providing, in a friendly and welcoming environment, affordable programs and activities that will keep them mentally and physically active.

We are a volunteer-based, not-for-profit organization and are a registered charity.  We receive no government funding but rely on an annual donation from the Shepherd’s Centre (Brockville) Foundation and participant fees.

Further detailed information on our organization is available from the More About Us link in the navigation bar above.

Registration for Winter 2023 Semester


Registration Day will be held at the Memorial Centre on Monday, January 9, 2023, from 10 AM to 1 PM.

The Winter Semester will begin the week of January 16, 2023.

We are holding an in-person registration in order to alleviate some of the difficulties we had with on-line registrations, such as incorrect or incomplete forms, and reconciling cheques and e-transfers with the amounts received. Our volunteer office staff is small, and they spent considerable time this past semester working on these tasks. We would like to lessen their workload as much as possible.

We plan to make the Registration Day as safe as we do our venues. Masks will be strongly encouraged and available, as will hand sanitizer. Also, we plan to have many volunteers to speed you through the process.

The schedule of activities and their status, activity descriptions and the process to register are all listed on the Activities Information Tab.

Enrolment Day


The Fall 2022 Semester will commence the week of September 12, 2022. Enrolment Day is Wednesday, Sept. 7 by phone and/or email.

Find Out What’s On Offer for September

Winter 2022 Semester Enrollment


Registration for the winter semester will be held on Wednesday, Feb 2, 2022.  It will be in the same phone/email format (with pre-enrolments for some classes) we have been following for the last few semesters due to Covid.

The classes will commence the week of Feb. 7, 2022 at the Salvation Army.  Wall Street United Church has not determined their opening date yet.  We will advise as soon as we hear from the Church.  There are changes to the dates, times and venues for some classes.  Some new classes are also being offered.  Check them out under the Activity TAB of the website.

The information package will be sent to you in the next day or two.  Look for it in your E-mail inbox.  In the meantime be sure you have your Booster Shot.  It is necessary to attend classes.

Start of Winter Semester Delayed


We will be delaying the start of the Winter Semester depending on input from the Health unit and our provincial government. Please check in often for updates.

Once a date for starting is determined, an email will go out to all members outlining the registration process and dates.

Winter 2022 Semester


Registration for the winter semester will be held on Wednesday, Jan. 12, 2022.  It will be in the same phone/email format (with pre-enrolments for some classes) we have been following for the last few semesters due to Covid.

The classes will commence the week of January 17, 2022.  This will allow a 2-week buffer following the season’s celebrations.  Of course, we are dependent on the rules from the local health unit and the provincial government.  There will be changes to the dates, times and venues for some classes.  Some new classes will also be offered.  So stay tuned.  Watch for updates on the website and in your email.

The board would like to wish our membership a safe and happy holiday.  Also, a big thank you for following the rules for Covid prevention.  If you are eligible, please get your booster vaccination!

2021 Fall Semester registration

The September 2021 newsletter just issued contains references to the 2021 Fall Semester registration in terms of documents and process.

The newsletter may be accessed from the newsletter tab above.

Registration downloadable forms are available from the “Activities” tab above.

A Note to our Pickleball Members

There are Picklers meeting at the Strowger courts on Wed and Fri from
1:00-4:00 weather dependent. The target audience are those people who
used to play PB in those time slots with 50+ at WSUC. The same mindset
as well, non-competitive fun and beginners are encouraged to give it a try.

Many people have been meeting in those time slots all summer so it’s
just an extension for them but it would be nice for everyone to know the
schedule and to encourage newbies as well. It will be a natural
progression for those participants to rejoin 50+ when conditions permit a return to WSUC.

Fall 2021 Semester Update


A Message from President Carmen Grosse:

The Board is working very hard to bring you a new semester, however we are still dealing with troubling times. Covid-19 and its variants continue to harangue and add levels of complexity to our planning.

We are trying to finalize schedules. Our hope is that we will get the semester running before the end of the month. We are aiming for Sept. 20. A follow up letter will be sent out to all with instructions for enrolling, dates, and procedures. Please be patient.

Also note that with the governments new Covid passport mandate we will require proof of vaccination and a picture ID such as a drivers licence or health card. The information will be required once at your first class only. Remember we are trying to make the environment safer for all.

If you still require a vaccine and need help to set up an appointment or transportation please call the office at 613-345-2412 and someone will assist you. ALSO, if you have concerns or questions about the vaccine please speak to your doctor, pharmacist or someone at the health unit.

50+ AC Code Yellow Impact


Hello 50+ members,

As most of you are probably aware the Leeds, Grenville and Lanark Area has been placed in the Yellow (Protect) level in Ontario’s COVID-19 Response Framework.

The YELLOW level guidelines state:
– that for non-fitness activities the guidelines are the same from GREEN to YELLOW, but
– a fitness activity will be limited to a maximum of 10 persons in the room.

For the last week of the Fall semester, Dec 14 – Dec 19 the 50+ board has decided that:
– all non-fitness activities will proceed per their Fall schedules
– all fitness activities will be cancelled (Chair Yoga, Seniors Low Impact Exercise, Seniors Warmup, Tai Chi)

For the interval between the Fall and Winter semesters, from Dec 20 – Jan 18 the board has decided that:
– All activities will be cancelled at the Perth St location

As the situation and code levels change we will keep you informed via emails and the website.
