Third Age Learning at Kwantlen (TALK)

The TALK winter/spring 2021 brochure is now available. Click on Courses and Registration.


Our campuses are located on the unceded & traditional territories of the Kwantlen, Musqueam, Katzie, Semiahmoo, Tsawwassen, Qayqayt, and Kwikwetlen peoples.  We are committed to building relationships with these first peoples based on honour and respect.


If you have any concerns about how a Zoom webinar will work on your computer, view the answers through our Frequently Asked Questions webpage. For you, the advantage of TALK’s online courses is that you can access them from anywhere in the world.  For us, the advantage is that we can now reach out to all those who have previously been unable to attend TALK due to mobility issues, family responsibilities, or lack of transportation.



We are currently looking for volunteers to serve on our Board or to serve on our Marketing Committee.  If you want to learn more please contact our new Chair, Jane Diston ( or 604-596-6000).

How do I join?

Anyone over 50 years of age can join! All you need is a membership (annual cost of $10.00) and you can register for TALK's courses. To find out more about our upcoming courses, check out our "Courses and Registration" page. 

What kind of courses can I take?

TALK prides itself on providing a variety of course options from Health & Wellness, Arts & Culture or even courses that include taking you on tours off campus such as to the CityTV Headquarters in Vancouver!
