About us

Seniors Association Kingston Region is a not-for-profit, charitable, volunteer-run organization dedicated to keeping seniors active, involved, connected, and supported.

We offer over 150 varied, engaging, and stimulating programs to our members and stay connected with them through our monthly publication, Vista, filled with stories, feature articles, and timely information written with seniors in mind. Additional services, guest speakers, special events, and meal options are available to both members and non-members.

We have five locations offering programs to better serve you in your neighbourhood. Our main location, The Seniors Centre, is open to the public and hosts a full-service restaurant and café for dining in person or to go as well as a women’s boutique and gift shop. Can’t come to us?

A little history

Seniors Association Kingston Region evolved in 1997 through the amalgamation of two longstanding organizations, the Kingston and Area Senior Citizens’ Council and the Kingston Seniors Day Centre.

With the amalgamation and a membership of about 4000, the Association consolidated its role as the central coordinating body for activities, providing services and representing the interests of seniors throughout the greater Kingston area. We currently have over 5000 members to whom we distribute Vista, our monthly 48-page publication.

As we say at the Association, “Join us for the time of your life!”

Meet Our Team

Board of Directors

The Association is governed by a volunteer Board of Directors, ably assisted by a handful of dedicated employees who manage the various departments. The Association receives some funding from the Ontario Ministry of Health and Long Term Care, and from the City of Kingston through purchase of service agreements, but most of its funds come from self-generated membership and activity fees, from sales of food, crafts and used books, from donations, and from various fundraising activities.
