Love to Learn? Interested in New Experiences? Check us out!
We exist to provide outstanding learning and growth opportunities for adults over the age of 50.
The Chilliwack ElderCollege is offered in proud partnership with the University of the Fraser Valley.
We are a volunteer-powered, not-for-profit society serving our community for over 15 years.
We feature a relaxed approach to learning with fun and stimulating courses held mainly at the UFV Canada Education Park Campus. We offer a Fall and Spring semester and our courses are 2 to 7 sessions in length. There are no exams or grades and only a few courses have pre-requisites.
Join us to gain new skills, experience new adventures and enjoy the many benefits of lifelong learning!
