The college has a $10 membership fee for people over the 50, which must be paid once each school year. People who are under 50 will only be accepted if space permits, as priority is always given to those who are over 50, and they must pay an additional $15 per course.

The college welcomes input for future courses and is always looking for volunteer instructors who have personal expertise in various skills, professions or hobbies. Have an idea? Call the centre at 604-517-8732.
