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)

SWESA Mask Policy

The City of Edmonton has lifted the temporary Mandatory Face Covering bylaw, therefore, SWESA has decided that the wearing of a mask is no longer required to be worn by members, instructors, volunteers, visitors, and guests.

Wearing a mask is a personal choice. Some will choose to wear a mask, some will not. We at SWESA ask that you continue to be kind and respectful of choices that are made.

We also encourage that you postpone your visits if you are feeling unwell. If you have any questions, please email us at info@swesa.com

Thank you for being a part of the SWESA community and your patience and understanding has meant a lot to us. We look forward to seeing all of you soon!
