Join us in celebrating National Seniors Day.
The Museum of Vancouver is proud to pay tribute to the seniors who have helped build our city and country, and continue to make valuable contributions to our community and society. National Seniors Day, which coincides with the United Nations International Day of Older Persons, is an occasion for Canadians to celebrate and appreciate seniors.
All day on October 1, Seniors can enjoy a reduced admission to the Museum of Vancouver. $5.00 gets you in to see our history galleries and our current feature exhibition: ALL together NOW.
We'll also be serving FREE coffee and cookies free from 10am - 1pm!
- Today, one in seven Canadians is aged 65 or over. By 2036, nearly one in four Canadians will be a senior.
- In 2011, Canadians lived an average of 81.7 years, an increase of almost 25 years since 1921.
- Although seniors volunteer at a lower rate than the population as a whole, those seniors who do volunteer give many more hours on average than other age groups.
