Our Policies

The Centre has anti-racism, anti-harassment and work place safety policies (on display in the GP Room). The City of Toronto Code of Conduct is posted on the doors. Members are bound by these policies.

The Centre reserves the right to accept or decline a member and to remove the privileges of any member judged to be incapable of meeting the requirements of participating in activities. The Centre will not tolerate abusive behaviour of a member to other participants, staff, or third parties, or behaviour which detracts from the enjoyment of the Centre by other members.

All Syme55+ Centre events/activities require physical independence and mobility. A member must be able to participate in events alone or with minimal assistance from a companion who is responsible for the member’s welfare. Any physical or mental condition requiring special medical attention must be reported.


Volunteers are the “key” to our success. The Centre has many committees that oversee and set policies for all of the Centre’s services. The effort of the volunteers keeps the Centre providing our services at a reasonable cost to the members. Volunteers can select from a series of jobs and you can commit to as much time as you like. Volunteer for something you like doing or try something you have never done before. You will have fun!

Volunteers are always welcome on our committees: program, fundraising, travel and communication/marketing to name some.
PLEASE VOLUNTEER! (sign up at Reception).
