Who We Are

Living and Learning in Retirement (LLIR) is a lively group of over 1,200 retirees who attend courses at the York University Glendon College Campus (Bayview and Lawrence Ave).

Members usually attend one course in the fall and a second in the winter. Each course consists of ten lecture dialogue sessions and are held on Fridays. Members must attend at least one course each year.

Course topics vary based on input from members and lecturer availability as managed by the Program Committee.

Our Vision        
To be a leading Third Age Learning organization providing academic opportunities that meet the learning needs of the increasing number of retired adults.

Our Mission    
To plan, direct and manage excellent academic programs for the education and pleasure of retired adults.


Without knowledge the world is bereft of culture. And so, we must be educators and students both.
