Living and Learning in Retirement (LLIR) is an organization that offers stimulating general interest courses. Membership is open to anyone who wants to keep active and intellectually engaged as they grow older. LLIR is run by a Board of volunteers from our membership.

We are the oldest third-age learning group in Canada and have been operating for more than fifty years.
