The Third Age Learning Movement was established in France in 1973. It rapidly spread throughout Europe and the UK and first arrived in Canada in Sherbrooke, PQ in 1975. Worldwide, there are now many organizations offering learning opportunities for older, often retired, people (third age) – universities, community organizations, and independent groups.
According to Catalist, The Canadian Network for Third Age Learning, there are now over 50 third age learning groups of various kinds in Canada, coast to coast.
Third Age Learning Burlington – 3ALB – is one of the newer Canadian Third Age Learning organizations.
3ALB invites adults (55+) in the Burlington area to join us at our stimulating sessions!
