History/Biography
In 1959 Commissioner George McLean (former Alderman) first met with the elder citizens of the northern part of Burnaby. At that time they expressed their need for a building as they did not wish to be programmed into other recreation centres. Previous to and during the construction of the Confederation Community Centre for the Retired (also known as Confederation House), representatives of the O.A.P.O., Senior Citizen Associations and the existing elder citizen’s programme at Willingdon Heights met with members of the Parks and Recreation Commission and staff. They discussed what type of facility was needed to meet the recreational needs of the retired population in North Burnaby. In 1971 the Burnaby Parks and Recreation Commission authorized the building of Confederation House. Architect Norman S. Jones designed the building at 4585 Albert Street with the assistance of Consultant W.D. McKinnon of Industrial Construction Centre Ltd. A sod turning ceremony was held on Friday, June 11, 1971. A minimal mandatory membership fee was established in order to establish a membership list. As it was then, and continues to be today, anyone fifty or over and retired is eligible for membership; exercise classes, credit and non-credit college courses, drop-in, club activities and social events are all offered. Marie Mogensen collected these records while working as a staff member for the Confederation House. She was the “Elder Co-ordinator” for the Centre.
