COVID-19 update: community centres

September 13, 2021: Proof of vaccination is required to participate in some programs and events.

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.

Strathcona Community Centre — located in a historic neighbourhood east of Chinatown — has programs for all ages and abilities.

We offer licensed childcare, preschool classes programming for children, youth, adults, and seniors; breakfast and food security programs for children, and a fitness centre. Outside, there is a playground.
