Examples of our Current & Past Recreation & Leisure Programs and Services:

Social Scene:

Do you like organizing, planning and being creative? Well then, this is the group for you! QVSS is introducing, for the first time, it’s very own social committee. We will be organizing dances and parties for the agency, making decorations for special events and celebrations, researching and planning agency trips, making our very own suggestion box, and going on shopping excursions and so much more. Get involved! Become a member today!


Take a break and relax while enjoying a pleasant facial, massage, pedicure or manicure. Sit and be dazzled with a new hairstyle and look! We will touch upon make-up application and proper health and hygiene. This program is all about you…so come and pamper yourself!

Story Time:

This program will include trips to the library, reading of books under a tree in the park on a nice day, the use of “read along” CD sets as well as E-Books on-line. Staff will be teaching reading to those who are interested and or in need of help. The group will also watch the movie of the book after completion, with discussions and comparisons between the two afterwards. Hope to see you there, as it will be relaxing and enjoyable!


This group will head to the new Rec-plex on Cannifton Road or to the YMCA to enjoy a morning of swimming and splashing around. We encourage those people who sign up for this program to come with their bathing suit on underneath their clothing when they arrive in the morning. This will give the group that much more time to have fun! Please bring alternative clothing for afterwards and a plastic bag for your wet swimsuit and all essential items to be comfortable the rest of the day.

Sweet Treats:

Do you have a sweet tooth and enjoy baking? Then you should join this group as we will be making all kinds of sweets to enjoy at the end of the day…cakes, cookies, muffins, squares, tarts, fudge, candy…YUMMY!


This class focuses on experiences generating stimulus. Participants use tactile stimulating materials such as play-doh, building blocks, finger painting and drawing/colouring to express themselves. Other stimuli include music, aromatherapy, certain reality programs and visits to the Snoozalen Room at Pathways to Independence. Join in and express yourself.
