Sunshine Coast Elder College

Intro to Sunshine Coast Elder College

Sunshine Coast ElderCollege

Marleen-Vermeulen-350px-2Originally part of Capilano University, Sunshine Coast ElderCollege became an independent non-profit society in October 2015. We work in partnership with the Sunshine Coast Regional District and in association with Capilano University and the Sechelt Public Library.

The Sunshine Coast ElderCollege, in cooperation with the SCRD, will continue to offer and expand on the same top quality courses and highly qualified instructors that our students have been accustomed to. As well, our students will be able to access more convenient and easy course registrations.

Anyone over 55 who wants to keep on learning can take courses at the Sunshine Coast ElderCollege. Please see the course descriptions for individual course fees.

For our Fall 2019 session our registration fees will remain at $36.75 (GST included).

Students can register on-line and in person.

The Registrations for the Fall 2019 courses will start in the middle of August 2019.

Look for the updates to our Website and also for the SCRD Recreation Brochure that is expected to be in your mailbox by the middle of August.

Our traditional and free Preview of the Fall 2019 courses will take place at 10am on August 15, 2019 at the Sechelt campus of CapU.
