At Durham Lifelong Learning, the health and well-being of our subscribers and volunteers is our top priority.  With the continued and ever-changing news about COVID-19, we wanted to let you know that we are monitoring and will follow recommended strategies outlined by the World Health Organization (WHO) and all Canadian health authorities.  We will resume our program once it is deemed safe to do so for all concerned.  Our organizing committee will communicate our plan and timeline to our subscribers via this website, personalized email and a telephone robotic call. 

If you have any questions, click on “Contact” below and submit a question or comment using the “Contact Us” form.

In the meantime, we remain dedicated to the well-being of you and your families as well as our volunteers during this difficult time. 

We thank you for your understanding.  Please stay safe and we look forward to seeing you once normalcy is restored.

Sincerely,  The DLL Team



We are a non-profit organization of approximately 450 subscribers and have been providing high quality presentations and seminars by interesting and engaging speakers for 18 years.  Our topics are extremely varied and cover a multitude of subjects. There are opportunities to ask questions of the presenters and also to attend seminars for an in-depth understanding of a particular subject.

Our Mission


We believe that you should never stop learning.  There are so many interesting subjects and so much information to absorb that it is a lifelong journey to discover new facts and opinions.  Our presentations provide intellectual stimulation, interesting opinions and promote conversation, discussion and the dissemination of knowledge.  We value your feedback and, with your support, will continue to provide the highest possible standard of presentation material.  

Speakers / Seminars


There are two series of weekly speakers, a spring series of eight presentations beginning in March and a fall series of eight  presentations beginning in October. These occur every Tuesday at 1:15 p.m. for approximately one hour. 

Between May and September there are often seminars which allow for a group of individuals to spend more time getting  deeper into specific subjects which may have been presented during the Spring or Fall speaker series.  New subjects may also be introduced. 

About Us
Annual subscriptions are open to all individuals at a cost of $85 per person payable at any time during the year.  The year's program consists of eight one hour presentations in the spring series and eight in the fall series. This subscription fee includes ALL seminars that are offered, in May and in September.  This is your chance to meet people with similar interests and to expand your knowledge on a variety of subjects.  Click on the subscription menu tab for more information.
