We provide a place where Calgary seniors 50+ can come together to enjoy social events, workshops, art classes, bridge and other activities that match their unique needs and social interests. We recognize that seniors strengthen the community and offer a place to enhance their physical, social and emotional well-being. 

    Due to Covid–19, all activities run by Nifty 50s are on hiatus.

    Calgary Co-op:

    Effective Monday March 23,we will devote 8:00 am to 9:00 am every Monday, Wednesday and Friday especially to seniors and people living with disabilities, so that they have an opportunity to shop in a freshly sanitized, fully stocked store. We will not shut our doors to others during these time frames, however we ask all other community members to please shop outside of those hours if at all possible, so that those most in need of support are able to fulfill their needs. Furthermore, our Pharmacies will open an hour earlier to support this.
