The Seniors Association Kingston Region, incorporated under the laws of Ontario, is a not-for-profit, voluntary, and charitable organization. The Association evolved in 1997 through the amalgamation of two longstanding organizations, the Kingston and Area Senior Citizens’ Council and the Kingston Seniors Day Centre. Both former organizations were founded in 1976-77 by seniors who felt there was a need to help other seniors in the community. With the amalgamation and a membership of about 4000, the Association consolidated its role as the central coordinating body for activities, providing services and representing the interests of seniors throughout the greater Kingston area. We currently have over 5000 members to whom we distribute Vista, our monthly 48 page publication.
