Third Age Learning at Kwantlen (TALK)

Fall 2021 registration is now OPEN. Please click on Courses and Registration for online registration and payment through Amilia, our secure booking site.  We are offering both online Zoom webinars and in-person classes.  

 

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.

 

LOOKING TO VOLUNTEER?

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

 

Please tell you friends about TALK!
