Many of us retired folk travel to faraway lands, especially on these cold, dreary winter days. And some of us would just like to stay put and enjoy our neighbourhood.

Do you know of all the great discounts and bargains we can receive? I will mention a few below and you can let us know of others you have discovered.



BC residents 65 or over do not pay application, tuition or student fees. You can take most of the undergraduate courses and sit beside 20-year-olds. And you don’t have to write exams. I have taken many courses and particularly like to learn about the history of countries before I travel.
