COVID-19 update: community centres

Come prepared with your official proof of vaccination and government-issued photo ID.

We are moving forward with full programming for community centres, including:

  • Easing of physical distancing measures
  • Gradual and phased re-implementation of pre-pandemic operations and full recreational programming
  • Elimination of one-way traffic flow and re-introduction of lobby and social seating
  • Phased increased occupancy for pools, fitness centres, and rinks

Mask wearing

Masks are mandatory in all indoor public spaces for those 12 and older, even if you are vaccinated. If you do not have a mask, one will be provided at the front desk.


Programming

August 25, 2021: Participation in community centre programming may be affected by the recent Provincial Health Authority regulations. Program registrants will be updated as soon as information becomes available.

Visit one of our 24 Vancouver community centres. We focus on recreational, social, and cultural activities for all residents.

Stay in shape, learn new skills, and meet new friends with activities in fitness, arts and crafts, culture, dance, swimming, skating, child care, and more.

We provide services to low income and at-risk adults at Carnegie Community Centre, Evelyne Saller Centre, and Gathering Place Community Centre in the Downtown Eastside and Downtown South communities. 

Register for recreation programs and services

Our registration and reservation system is easy to navigate and helps you plan, track, and manage all your recreation requests in one place.

 Online registration is not available for Thunderbird and Ray-Cam Co-operative community centres. Please register for programs in-person.
