Abbotsford Learning Plus Society

Frequently Asked Questions


What do we do?

We design and offer classes, programs, and workshops on a host of subjects, reflecting the interests of the Abbotsford community as a whole, and seniors and retirees in particular. Except for a very few "limited" classes, pre-registration is not necessary; you can come on the spur of the moment.


80131235194932florist1.jpgAll classes take place during daylight hours. Most classes are one-day programs held from 10:00 am until noon. All are affordable: usually just $5.00 per session (a bit more for some classes where registration is limited)


All our classes, unless otherwise stated, are held at:


2499 McMillan Rd (corner of Old Yale)

*a few classes may be held at other locations, as stated in our brochure*

Do you have to be a member?

Of course not. For most classes, all you have to do is show up. But there are definite advantages in becoming a Learning Plus member:

Do you have to be a senior? 

Not at all! Because our programs run during the day, most attendees are, in fact, seniors. But we welcome people of all ages -- including home schoolers, who occasionally visit us when there's a topic of particular interest.

What does it cost?

Just $5.00 per class, plus a $2.00 Abbotsford Recreation Centre city facility drop-in fee.  

Our best deal?  If you become a Learning Plus member for $10 per year, you have the option of buying the $50.00 semester pass which covers a full semester of sessions. Instead of the $2 ARC drop in fee, you can purchase a $25.00 annual ARC Senior Activity Centre membership which gives you access to our programs as well as badminton, pickleball, billiards, cribbage, bridge, senior track time, art classes, Knitwits & Happy Gang.
