Who We Are

Inspired and supported by Third Age Learning programs in Kitchener- Waterloo, Guelph and Burlington, a small group of interested persons in Hamilton took steps in June 2011 to begin the development of the city’s own Third Age Learning organization.

A year later in July 2012, Hamilton Third Age Learning was registered in Ontario as a not for profit Corporation and in the Spring of 2013 launched its first series of six lectures. Another six lectures were given that Fall and the presentation of Spring and Fall lectures each year has become the pattern of the organization’s operation.

Hamilton Third Age Learning (HTAL) is a volunteer organization dependent upon the work and support of many local volunteers. The Officers and Committees of  the organization can be seen by clicking here.

The planning and launching of HTAL were assisted tremendously by the receipt of a generous donation by an anonymous donor whose support is gratefully acknowledged.

The Hamilton Council on Aging, a well-established charitable organization has given strong backing and a joint agreement with it allows for the ongoing evolution of HTAL.

The President of McMaster University, Dr. Patrick Deane, has given his warm endorsement and support, and the McMaster Innovation Park has kindly accommodated us in its superbly equipped conference facilities. Mohawk College also has assisted us with a generous financial grant.

Legal services relating to incorporation and by-laws have been very capably and generously provided by SimpsonWigle Law LLP., and so too have been the banking arrangements provided by the First Ontario Credit Union.

The company Legacy Designs and its principals Gisèle Grenier and Joe Butka have shown great patience and skill in their design of our website and their performance is applauded.
