Supporting the well-being of Burlington’s diverse and growing community of Seniors
BSCI UPDATE November 4, 2016
The Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) between the City and the Burlington Seniors’ Centre Inc. (BSCI) expired December 31, 2015.
Under this agreement BSCI, a not-for-profit volunteer Corporation, had the responsibility at the Burlington Seniors Centre, of running the Bistro Café, Day Trips and Events.
On October 26, 2016 the City notified BSCI that it would assume these responsibilities as of November 1, 2016.
The City and BSCI have been in discussion for many months about beginning negotiations to renew the MOU. BSCI is disappointed that the City chose to end the relationship instead.
The BSCI Board will meet in November to discuss next steps. Our goal is to continue to be a vital organization, supporting the well-being of Burlington’s diverse and growing community of seniors.
We invite seniors in our community to participate in this discussion and share your ideas by visiting our website www.burlingtonsc.org or email firstname.lastname@example.org for information on how you can become involved.
