About the Golden Age Society (G.A.S.)

A SHORT HISTORY by Corinne Cyr

The Golden Age Society was organized in 1976 to provide a drop-in centre for Yukon Seniors and any other visiting seniors. The group rented a building on Wood Street for 18 years, paying the operating and maintenance costs through many fund-raising events. In 1996, they bought into the Yukon Sport Building on 4th Avenue and now own 1/3 of the footage of the building, known as the “Golden Age Society – Seniors Complex”.

This non-profit Society is governed by a volunteer Board of Directors. A part-time Manager supports the Board and the general operations of the facility. Many social and recreational programs are provided for 10 months of the year (closed July and August).
