About TAN and Third Age Learning
The Third Age Network in Ontario came out of an initial meeting in 2007 of lifelong learning groups in the Toronto area. Other senior learning organizations beyond Toronto have joined over the years and there are now 29 members from London to the Georgian Bay area representing more than 9000 senior lifelong learners in Southern Ontario.
Every other year, the Third Age Network sponsors a symposium for organizers and facilitators of Third Age learning programs. The 2017 Symposium was held May 17, 2017 at Ryerson University in Toronto. (click here for more details)
Our goals are to share issues and solutions to common problems, including information on potential speakers, practical administrative details, interesting initiatives and marketing to seniors. We are available to help initiate Third Age learning groups across the province. In addition, we work with post secondary institutions, government and the private sector to support and promote third age learning.
