Online Programming in Effect

EFL will be switching to our online program today, due to weather conditions.

Please check your email for the Zoom link.

The EFL Arena Café is closed as well.


The Events for Life Centre (EFL) is located at the Beaver Creek Farm in the Town of the Blue Mountains, just outside of Thornbury Ontario. EFL provides day programs for individuals with special needs from Thornbury, Meaford, Collingwood and the surrounding areas. Operating Monday through Thursdays, EFL provides social, recreational, and healthy living skills for over 30 participants both in person and on-line. Our goal is to support these individuals so they can live, learn, and work in an integrated, inclusive community.

EFL’s 2nd annual SOCK HOP

Join us, for EFL’s 2nd annual SOCK HOP!

On March 21st, we come together to recognize World Down Syndrome Day.

Starting in 2007, the 21st day of March was selected to signify the uniqueness of the triplication of the 21st chromosome which causes Down Syndrome.

This year we have a featured guest, “Disco Dave”.  If you haven’t caught a glimpse of his shoes, prepare to be blown away!

Following our dance party with “Disco Dave”, the EFL Arena Café will be open and serving up the hamburger or hot dog combos.

Heart of a Hero

Heroes walk among us. The Heart of a Hero transcends race, social status, religion, any disability … and only sees capability, possibility, creativity, bravery, inclusivity…. fueled by Joy, fueled by Love (and a moment or two of dancing!).
From ALL of our heroes here at EFL, we give you EFL’s cover of Cathy Heller’s Heart of A Hero❤️.

The Town of the Blue Mountains recognizes the First Nations, Metis and Inuit peoples of Canada as traditional stewards of the land. The municipality is located within the traditional land of the Anishnaabek, Haudenosaunee and Went-Wyandottee peoples. We acknowledge the Traditional Territory of the Anishinabek Nation: The People of the Three Fires known as Ojibway, Odawa, and Pottawatomie Nations. Blue Mountain is located within the boundary of Treaty 18 region of 1818 and we give thanks to the Chippewas of Saugeen, and the Chippewas of Nawash, now known as the Saugeen Ojibway Nation, as the traditional keepers of this land.
