A vibrant, versatile, and vital aspect to the community.

MACAW's Vision:

  • Develop a varied volunteer pool, including seniors, to act as facilitators, greeters, consultants, advisors, etc.

    • ​in collaboration with other community organizations with existing volunteer programs.

  • Support collaborative new and existing community projects based on the performing and creative arts and wellness activities, with an intergenerational approach.

  • Focus on seniors’ wellness and engagement in the programs.

  • Build upon current successful intergenerational programs being held in the Manotick United Church building. 


The Manotick and Area Centre for Arts & Wellness focuses on intergenerational connections for seniors through arts and wellness. In 1955-56, Manotick United Church was expanded to include a hall that served as the only community centre for many years. In keeping with tradition, this space has been used for a multitude of activities such as Tai Chi, yoga, art, music, and dance classes as well as community dances. Our popular concert series focusses on our local singers and musicians.

MACAW is grateful to the New Horizon for Seniors funding received from the federal government New Horizons and Social Development Canada department which made all of our virtual wellness activities and events possible.
