Values that Guide Us

Our Board members, committee members and key volunteers try to build an environment that nurtures the following values:


We stimulate lifelong learning by offering excellent and affordable courses, covering a range of academic topics, in an environment conducive to social interaction.

Caring and Respect

We make connections, welcoming members to a respectful, accessible, and caring learning community. We value people and ensure this is demonstrated. We actively seek to understand and respond to the needs and expectations of our members.


We value our close relationship with Glendon College and have a committed and active volunteer Board of Directors who manage our resources responsibly.


We use clear and frequent communication to our members in a variety of formats.


We encourage our members to become actively involved on a volunteer basis in classroom support roles, committee membership and leadership roles.
