Since 1989, Elder Learners has worked with Saint Mary's University to sponsor monthly lectures on Saturday mornings during the fall and winter on the Saint Mary's campus.

For the yearly fee of $20.00 you can become a member of Elder Learners.  Membership entitles you to discounts off both the price of attendance for the Elder Learners Lectures and the fees for the Learning Unlimited courses. Anyone can join regardless of age.

You will find yourself engrossed in one of our many fascinating lectures with entertaining and well-informed presenters who make their stories come alive. Come and enjoy the fellowship and stimulating topics on lecture day and enrol in a course. A further advantage of membership is your invitation to join in the fun of the coach tours and visit interesting locations in the company of friends.

Saint Mary’s University and Elder Learners are committed to programs for life long learning.  Please join us for an interesting and rewarding experience of Lifelong Learning.
