Vision: The Emerald Isle Seniors* Society - established in Toronto, Ontario in 1996 - was formed to promote and assist all senior citizens* of Irish heritage in celebrating life now in Canada together with passing on the culture of all parts of Ireland.
Mission: To establish, maintain and operate an Irish senior citizens' centre. In doing so we will provide our members recreational, social and educational activities including those of Irish theatre, music and culture.
Goals: The Society is formed as a senior citizens group having both non sectarian and non political views. We will address the danger of social isolation and vulnerability to exploitation, particularly among seniors on low fixed incomes.
