We welcome organizations and individuals interested in seniors-sector issues to become members of the Edmonton Seniors Coordinating Council. Membership in ESCC is available in one of three categories:
- Senior-serving organizations are charities or not-for-profit organizations incorporated under appropriate statutes of Alberta or Canada or of any other jurisdiction and authorized to operate in Alberta that provide social and recreational programs and/or social support services for Edmonton’s aging population.
- Supportive organizations are organizations that have an interest in the delivery of services to seniors and do not meet the criteria above (i.e. for-profit organizations or organizations based outside of Edmonton).
- Members at large are individuals or honorary appointees that have an interest in the delivery of supports and services to seniors.
The membership fee is $50 for senior- serving and senior-supporting organizations and $10 for members at large.
Membership is valid from January 1 to December 31.
