In 1970 a group of Danish seniors began meeting weekly in the basement of St. Joseph's Cathedral. As membership increased, a drop-in centre was formed and, in 1976, 'West Edmonton Seniors' was incorporated as a non-profit organization.
The group moved to the Edmonton General Hospital in 1991. Originally on the main floor of the hospital, the Centre re-located to the 6th floor in 1993 and back again to the main floor in 1997, into what used to be the Day Hospital. In 2005, West Edmonton Seniors changed its name to Edmonton Seniors Centre to reflect the fact that, given the City's expansion, we were no longer in the west end!.
