Get Involved

Are you 55 & Better and looking to get involved more in the community?

THEMUSEUM invites you to contribute your diverse voice to the 55 & Better Committee. THEMUSEUM has recently launched a new programming initiative on Thursdays for those 55 & better! As part of the initiative, we are looking to create a committee of individuals that can help shape our future programming offerings, help execute Thursday programming, and use their voice to spread awareness.

Apply to the 55 & Better Committee


55 & Better Fridays are sponsored by Chartwell Retirement Residences and funded by the Government of Canada and an Ontario Community Grant.

Why open THEMUSEUM newsletters?

"Just scanning the themes here, I think you and the programming team should be very proud of the relevance of your institution to so many of the important conversations of our time. Please keep doing what you’re doing!"
