Message from our President - Ginny Bosomworth
Ginny Bosomworth Welcome to the LIFE Institute, where we offer opportunities for education, leadership, personal growth and social activities for people 50+ who enjoy learning.  

Our goal is to provide an invigorating environment that creates an opportunity for socializing and sharing time and talents with others. Central to all LIFE's objectives is membership and to ensure that continued first-class delivery of courses, clubs, travel programs, special events and services prevails.

When friends ask me if there are exams or grades attached to LIFE courses, I laugh, and say - no exams, no grades, just a large range of learning opportunities - from history to philosophy, politics to music... and beyond. I invite you to view and select courses from our website. LIFE Institute is located on the campus of Ryerson University in downtown Toronto. Put some LIFE into your life! Join us!
