Welcome to SWESA

SouthWest Edmonton Seniors Association (SWESA) is one of Edmonton’s newest seniors’ centres and we invite you to join us! SWESA is member-driven, working in concert with community groups and partners. Our programs and services empower older adults in southwest Edmonton to be active and feel part of a vibrant community of seniors.

Through a number of community locations, SWESA offers:
• Instructional Classes and Drop-in Activities (e.g., fitness, arts and crafts, informational talks and workshops, games and cards, coffee and chat)
• Services (e.g. access to home support services, book shops, a puzzle exchange, volunteer opportunities).
• Events and Activities (e.g.  choir, book club)

Hello Neighbour – We’d like to meet you!

As part of our 10 Year Anniversary celebrations, SWESA is excited to launch the “Hello Neighbour – We’d like to meet you!” Project. This project will support social participation and inclusion of all older adults in our community – and promote volunteerism. We are hosting a number of events as part of this project that will span from June to October 2022.
