Welcome to Alberta 55 plus
Established in 1980, Alberta 55 plus is a not for profit, volunteer driven group of people. We help mature Albertans enjoy a healthy, vital future through active lifestyle choices. We promote sports and recreation development for all Albertans 55 years of age and older. Our membership includes Albertans from eight different zones of the province.
Collectively, we support the Alberta 55 plus Summer/Winter Games and the Canada 55 plus Games.
Who We Are
Alberta 55 plus represents the heart of mature Albertan's. It stands for the idea of a fuller, healthier, more vital future; for the straightforward steps that can be taken towards that future. We promote participation and action and have generated a unique spirt of cooperation across the province.
The association believes that sport and recreation development for mature adults is a provincial issue. It has a direct bearing on the quality of life in this province and it can become a way of life for the individual and the province as a whole. That is the ideal. We’re working to make it a reality.
We divide the province into 8 zones to provide our members with better service.
Each of our 8 zones has an executive and board elected or appointed from established areas in the zone.
Through these zone boards, local needs are identified and addressed by the Provincial Association of Alberta 55 plus.
