Current restrictions are still not allowing us to meet regularly at Lifetime Learning and those gatherings are dearly missed by all.

      We did manage a gathering of a handful of MGC friends at Mission Heritage Park. on the afternoon of Thursday, October 22nd.  It was wonderful to have this social interaction again.  But the virus is on the upswing again as the colder winter weather arrives and folks are moving back indoors where the risk of spread is most threatening.  So friends, please get outside in the fresh air as much as is possible; avoid gatherings; wear a mask in indoor public spaces; wash your hands and cough into your sleeve to reduce the risk of Covid spread.  It looks like we are in this pandemic long haul for the foreseeable future.

Meanwhile, be calm, be kind, be safe, as directed by Dr. Bonnie Henry and local health officials.

Dear Members, Staff and Instructors


We want to assure you that we take the health and well-being of our community, members, staff, and instructors very seriously. Like you, we're closely monitoring the quickly developing effects of the Coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic and following Provincial health advisories.


In response to the current Covid -19 Pandemic and in keeping with Provincial Health Guidance, the Board of Lifetime Learning has passed the following motion:


As the user group of Lifetime Learning Centre is a group that is more at risk during the COVID-19 PANDEMIC, and on the recommendation of MPSD #75 Senior Management, Lifetime Learning Centre Society is suspending services until advised otherwise. This motion will be put into effect immediately.


The Centre is now temporarily closed for the duration of the health advisory.

We will be in contact through our e-newsletter, telephone tree and website with up dates.


We are exploring on-line programs and are in the initial stages of this development; we hope to share more details with you soon.


Be well everyone, stay safe,

MISSION GENEALOGY CLUB operates within the facilities of the LifeTime Learning Centre (the LTLC), and, in compliance with the directive of the LTLC (see MGC Events Tab) and the pandemic Covid-19 directives of our governments and health care personnel, we will follow the day-to-day developments and act accordingly. 

Please stay home, practice recommended hygiene rituals and implement physical distancing where necessary.  Please return to our MGC web page often for further developments.

Most of our club members are senior citizens - I hope you are all well.   This is a challenging time.   For those of you who are not aware the BC government has increased both volunteer and funded services for seniors through the 211 phone line. They hope to link volunteers with seniors to coordinate services like home delivery of groceries, medications etc.    Apparently there are many people looking for ways to help seniors and this initiative is to try and link them with seniors in their community who are needing help or feeling vulnerable.   The link below is to a CBC article that outlines some of the details of the program.

Stay well,
