Senior Citizens Association

The Senior Citizens Association is the largest association of the Community with more than 300 members. All members of the Hellenic Community of Ottawa aged 55 and over may become members of the association. As a member of the association, you can come to the Seniors’ Centre (entrance fee $1.00) to meet your friends, have a refreshment, a free cup of coffee (small fee for Greek coffee), play backgammon or watch TV. 


The association would like to see more ladies visiting the Seniors’ Centre. The newly formed Ladies Group will work with the association’s board to organize activities such as visits to museums, monasteries, the sugar bush, etc. The association would like its members’ participation, especially for two very successful annual activities “Kantada Night” and the summer picnic. The annual membership is $10 per person. For more information, please contact Cathy Dimitriou ( or Nikos Florakas (


A further note to the association’s members: The new Council of the Seniors Association welcomes all of you in particular the ladies of the Association.

We apologize for any inconvenience this may have caused.
