City of Ottawa Older Adults Fall Programs

Older Adult Programs 

to keep you 

active, healthy, and 

 having Fun this Fall!

Through the City of Ottawa, fitness is affordable and available to all 
age groups and mobility levels. The City offers a wide range of programs
to fit everyone's lifestyle, and the Ottawa Hand in Hand fee support program 
subsidizes those with financial difficulties. 

How do I register?

Not sure where to start? Take a look at our programs on  
ottawa.ca/recreationguide to see the impressive list of options available
to you.  Need more of a personal touch?  Drop into a recreation centre 
in your neighbourhood and find out how they can meet your fitness needs.

Our flexible fitness membership options do not require a yearlong 
contract, and adults ages 65+ are eligible for a discount on adult 
programs offered at recreation facilities.

What classes are available?

You can choose to exercise in our conditioning centres, swim, 
skate or take group exercise classes such as aquafit, spinning©, 
oga, Pilates, bootcamps, and the list goes on!

Prefer to take a specialty program? We offer a wide range of 
registration-based classes for all ages and stages and special needs.  
We have sports conditioning, TRX, Zumba®, yoga, tai chi, Nordic 
walking and much more!

Anyone over 50 can enrol in any adult programs; however, there 
is also a catalogue of classes targeted directly at adults age 50 and 
older. You will find a variety of fitness classes with a focus on:
·        Muscle toning, cardiovascular conditioning and flexibility.
·        Weight-bearing exercises designed so participants of any age
 can strengthen bones and build bone mass.
·        Increasing your energy level and increase your confidence 
using weights and cardio machines in our facilities. 
Maybe you'd rather sit down for a while with a good book. Maybe 
you'd like to write a good book, create some artwork and take some 
photos to go inside the book! These are all skills you can learn or 
sharpen through creative arts classes.

Many of Ottawa's older adults combine their activities with their 
social life through one of the City-operated seniors' centres. 
Here are the four Senior Centres located across Ottawa:

This year choose to remain active in your community with the
