Third Age Nipissing – Lifelong Learning


Today (Wed. Oct 20) at 4 pm we received a message from Cory Marks that he has been delayed in Arizona and is unable to be present for his lecture scheduled at the Elks club for 1 pm tomorrow. 

This event will  be rescheduled – at a date yet to be determined (and hopefully still at the Elks Club)
 If you have purchased tickets, there are several options:
  • hold on to your tickets – which will be honoured on the rescheduled date (TBD)
  • Receive an immediate refund which will be issued at the Elks Club tomorrow (October 21)  between 12:30 and 1:30 pm
  • Receive a refund later if the rescheduled date is not suitable for you

Please pass this information along to anyone you know who has purchased tickets.

Third Age Nipissing hopes that all ticketholders will be able to join us for the rescheduled event. We share your disappointment but it is also a reality that trip delays are unavoidable.

As soon as an alternate date is set, we will post a notice on our website and also share it immediately  with our subscribers. 

Inquiries can be directed to the Co-Chairs of Third Age Nipissing:

What is “Third Age Learning?”

First of all, what is the third age?  The first age is childhood; the second age is the time to earn a living and raise a family; the third age has been described as that time of life when men and women enjoy total independence.

Lifelong learning is  an important part of healthy aging. It keeps your mind active and your brain engaged. Older adults report experiencing increased life satisfaction, enjoyment and self-confidence through learning.

Research has identified key motivational benefits of why third age learners are involved in continued learning which include: aging well, social networking, promoting healthy brain function.

The Third Age Learning Movement was established in France in 1973. It rapidly spread through Europe and the United Kingdom and first arrived in Canada, (Sherbrooke Quebec) in 1975. Worldwide, there are now many organizations offering third age learning opportunities through universities, community organizations, and independent groups like ours. There are now over 50 such learning groups in Canada with Third Age Nipissing being among one of the newer ones.

Third Age Nipissing  Lifelong Learning Group

The new Third Age Nipissing Group (short form: 3ANip) formed in the fall of 2017.  The mission of the group is to develop and present Third Age Learning experiences to those in the North Bay area.  The objectives we wish to achieve include:

  • to present a series of stimulating and enlightening presentations designed to appeal to a broad range of interest.
  • to provide opportunities for this cohort to take part in lifelong learning activities for pleasure and personal fulfillment at a low cost.
  • to create a community of people who come together to learn.
