The Third Age Centre is an autonomous, community-based, non-profit organization, housed at Saint Thomas University.

The Centre's membership is predominantly made up of older adults (50+). However, an interest in, and a concern for, the issues that affect aging is of primary importance for all members.

The Centre was established in 1991 under the auspices of the Chair in Gerontology at Saint Thomas University. It is now an independent organization, although Saint Thomas continues its support by providing office space, and in kind support.


The mission of the Third Age Centre is to empower older adults to maintain healthy, independent, active lifestyles.

The mandate is to do research and public education on seniors' issues, and to act as an advocate on behalf of seniors.
