Seniors are an integral part of the Pickering Islamic Centre community. Their presence at the PIC enriches the atmosphere and allows everyone to benefit from their wisdom and experience.
Since 2017, the Pickering Islamic Centre in collaboration of Muslim Seniors of GTA conduct monthly meetings to help men and women over 55 stay socially engaged, physically healthy, and spiritually nourished! Meetings are held the last Sunday of the month at 11:00 am to 1:00pm in the Event Hall with a diversity of topics, chair yoga, refreshments and an opportunity to socialize and stay in touch. Please note there are no meetings during Ramadan, July, August and December.
PIC organized a day trip to Niagara Falls in July 2018. The seniors enjoyed full day of activities, delicious food and a boat tour at a subsidized cost.
The first Senior Health Fair was held in October 2018 during which various government agencies setup booths to provide information about services available to seniors. This allows our seniors to stay up to date and informed of relevant government programs and benefits that may be helpful to them. This was a very successful event attended by a large number of seniors from the community. We plan to have the same fair again this year.
