As a small print publication based in western Canada, The Senior Paper has been a well-kept secret for a very long time. Published at the beginning of each month 11-times per year (each month except August), we’ve been going strong for over 40 years.
“Thank you for The Senior Paper! There are so many wonderful memories in every issue.”
These words of thanks from one of our subscribers perfectly describes what The Senior Paper is all about: wonderful memories in every issue!
Within the pages of The Senior Paper, lives a community of seniors from across Canada and around the world sharing, connecting, and reconnecting folks with each other, often decades after losing touch. We even played a small role in helping some long-lost lovebirds reunite and marry after over 60 years apart! See their incredible story here on Global News.
We believe everyone has a great story to tell
Each one of us lives a life filled with special moments that touch us in a meaningful way. When we gather with friends and family, we recount these moments and share our precious memories, forging deeper connections with others. The Senior Paper celebrates these memories. We believe everyone has a great story to tell and we’re proud to give folks the platform to share their cherished memories with others.
Real people, real stories
“The Senior Paper records cultural history as seen and experienced by people who lived the time, events and activities.”
Packed into every issue of The Senior Paper is a treasure trove of information and rich history. The good, bad, highs, and lows of life are presented unvarnished by the people who experienced them, and are wrapped around treasured photographic memories of past and present day.
Enjoyable stories for all ages
“I’m not a senior but I love reading The Senior Paper!”
While most of our subscribers and contributors are seniors, we have subscribers and readers of all ages. Our youngest subscriber was in her early teens. Her mother told us, “Her grandfather got her a gift subscription for Christmas one year and she loved it! She enjoyed the old stories and photos and she says it’s like spending time with thousands of grandparents each month.”
We’ve heard from people in their 20s through their 50s who have told us they enjoy reading The Senior Paper because it isn’t filled with the negativity of today’s media. Instead, the stories are enjoyable and relatable across the generations.
The Senior Paper also serves as a bridge between the generations. People have learned about their parents and grandparents from our paper and many elementary schools across Canada subscribe because they’ve found The Senior Paper is a resource-filled source for teaching kids today about the days now past.
