Initially, the Belonging program was created to respond to the isolation that older adults experienced and expressed to the Jamii team during the COVID-19 pandemic. This program has steadily grown since 2020 and is now designed to promote healthy aging, social participation, and a sense of belonging through the arts for older adults across The Esplanade neighbourhood and beyond. 

Belonging offers year-round movement and visual arts workshops, as well as various short-term programs to accommodate the diverse interests of our community members. These workshops provide opportunities for learning new skills, social interaction, and fostering new friendships. With a regular schedule, Belonging workshops have become something for older adults to look forward to every week. 

Belonging's programming is defined by our Programming Committee, composed entirely of Belonging's participants. The Committee meets every three weeks for an hour on Thursdays from 10 am to 11 am. Would you like to be a part of the Programming Committee? Send us an email at info@jamii.ca or talk to one of the Jamii staff. 

We are grateful for the support of the Government of Canada, New Horizons for Seniors Program, as well as the Canada Council for the Arts. 

Programming is free for all participants.

Special thanks to Caroline Co-Op for supporting this program and to all the participants who are walking the 5k on October 19th, 2024, to fundraise for this program. You too can support this program with a financial donation. Click here.
