About 

The primary purpose of the South Peace Seniors Access Service Society (SPSASS) is to:

“Relieve loneliness and isolation associated with aged persons by
establishing and operating a drop-in center, and providing computer
training, workshops and information programs for seniors.”

SPSASS has become an integral part of the Senior Community in Dawson Creek, British Columbia and serves a very important and necessary purpose.

Staffed by volunteers, the walk-in facility, located in the Dawson Co-Op Mall, is open Monday to Friday 1:00 p.m. until 3:00 p.m. and is available for all seniors and family to access information and resources.

What We Do

Seniors Helping Seniors: Connecting Seniors with the right people and each other. More importantly, SPSASS helps our seniors stay connected.

The SPSASS outreach centre provides a “one stop shopping” location for seniors to receive information, mentoring, and other services designed to assist and sustain seniors in their home.

“I was in a predicament and didn't know which way to turn. The lady at Seniors Access helped me contact the right people in government to find out what my options were.”

SPSASS has created and nurtured mutually beneficial relationships that are critical to the successful delivery of educational workshops and the  conference. Some of these are:

  • Literacy Now
  • SPCRS
  • Better at Home
  • Step up and Ride
  • City of Dawson Creek
  • South Peace Retired Teachers
  • Alzheimer Society
  • Council of Senior Citizens of B.C.
  • Dawson Creek Co-op
  • Dawson Creek Library
  • Senior Citizens Hall
  • Northern Health Authority 
  • Dawson Creek Alliance Church
