Seniors Circles

Seniors Circles is a program that brings together isolated seniors who want to improve their English language skills and make friends. During the circles, seniors practise situational-based English. We want participants to be able to engage in a variety of daily activities, such as seeing a family doctor, visiting a bank or simply making conversation with their neighbours. The circles are led by a facilitator and a volunteer but any participant can lead by sharing their wisdom, experience and stories. Participants are welcomed to bring food to share and can lead activities such as singing, chair exercises, arts and crafts or even a Tai Chi session. Everyone is encouraged to interact with other members of the group to make friends and become less isolated.

If you know of a senior who might benefit from this program, please contact Silvana at 613-608-7135 or Silvana@cciottawa.ca
