Maple City Centre for Older Adults (MCCOA) was established in 1970 in a storefront facility on Queen Street in Chatham, Ontario.
We are a non-profit organization registered under #107662827RT0001
The organization was developed to offer programs and services for the adults of Chatham aged 50 years and over. After experiencing some growth in numbers, the Centre was moved to the Chatham Cultural Centre where they carried on their programs until 1990.
A decision was made, at this time by the Board of Directors and members to approach the Municipality of Chatham-Kent with recommendations of opening their own facility. In 1990, with donations of the land and the hydro servicing from John Bradley and Joe O'Neil and the support of the Municipality and the Members, the Maple City Centre on Merritt Ave. became a reality.
The organization continued to grow and again in 2013 an expansion was needed to accommodate the 1500 members. We are now operating as the Active Lifestyle Centre (ALC) and offer approx. 60 different programs and events.
Our business operates Monday to Friday from 8:30 a.m. to 10:00 p.m. with different programs and special events offered on the week-ends.
