COVID-19 update: programs paused

April 19, 2021: All adult indoor low intensity group classes such as fitness, yoga, and martial arts will be paused until May 25, 2021, in order to reduce transmission of COVID-19 as directed by BC’s Provincial Health Officer.

The following programs will continue to operate:

  • Fitness centres with individual and one-on-one training, pools and arenas
  • All children/youth programs
  • Individual sport programs
  • Adult outdoor activities up to groups of 10

If your program is suspended, we will contact you. You can also check your account for program schedules or call your community centre for more information.

Check back for updates.


Community centres reopened in a phased approach on September 8.

Programs and services focus on children, youth, seniors, and food security. Registration dates vary.

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.
