SLR Society for Learning in Retirement exists to meet the educational needs of retired persons in the Okanagan for the mutual benefit of the participants and the volunteer leaders.


All persons in their Retirement years are active and engaged in lifelong learning that is stimulating, creative and mind-expanding.

Established in 1995, SLR Society for Learning in Retirement (SLR) is a voluntary non-profit, tax-exempt, equal opportunity organization meeting the educational interests and needs of retired persons in the Central Okanagan, British Columbia, Canada. SLR is open to all retired and semi-retired persons who share a love of the camaraderie of learning regardless of their formal education.

Peer teaching and learning are at the heart of the SLR program. Group leaders encourage students to actively participate in their own learning. While these study leaders will not always be experts, they are also learners, engaged in a joint learning enterprise. Our small group sizes contribute to a lively and fun learning environment. Participants are generally encouraged, but not required or pressured, to give brief presentations.

SLR features:

  • Three terms, daytime classes, usually 2hrs/1X week

  • No tests or grades

  • No academic or experience requirements

  • Hearing assistance

  • Affordably priced courses
