Life After Fifty is delighted to announce that Lynn Calder will become our new Executive Director effective January 4, 2022.

Lynn comes to us after serving 20 years as Executive Director of ALSO - Assisted Living Southwestern Ontario where she passionately pursued equity for individuals living with physical disabilities. She is a highly-regarded and innovative leader with over 25 years of experience in the not-for-profit sector. The vastness of her experience will be a great asset as our agency continues to enrich the lives of older adults keeping them fit, well and social.

Life After Fifty’s Executive Director, Joyce Nixon, has announced she will be stepping down from her role in November 2021.  Joyce has played a critical role in the development and success of the organization and we wish her the best of luck as she leaves to pursue new opportunities.  She will be greatly missed by the staff, board, volunteers and members alike.  “I have spent 16 years of my career working for Life After Fifty and the decision to leave has been very difficult.  I am proud of my accomplishments and know I am leaving the Centre in the great hands of our staff and board” said Joyce Nixon.
The Board of LAF will be undertaking a recruitment process with the intentions of identifying and having a successor in place prior to Joyce's departure to ensure a smooth transition and continuity of our organization.
