Alberta 55 plus
What is Alberta 55 plus?
Who We Are
Alberta 55 plus was incorporated under the name of ASCSRA (Alberta Senior Citizens Sport and Recreation Association) as a volunteer action group on January 31st, 1980 to:
Each of our 8 zones must have an executive and board elected or appointed from established areas in the zone. Through these zone boards, local needs are identified and addressed by the Provincial Association.
