Key to the success of The Centre will be the development and implementation of dynamic programs to meet the needs and interests of the diverse demographic that The Centre is mandated to serve.
As we move towards our target building occupancy date (early May 2021) we need to recognize that at that date there will likely be Covid-19 restrictions still in place. Therefore, our program delivery readiness will require a degree of flexibility to accommodate such restrictions.
For ease in administration, scheduling and pricing, programs have been grouped into ten categories:
Proposed Activities, Programs and Services
Within these 10 categories will be 73 different programs for member participation, 39 of these programs are part of the current program of offerings and 34 are new. All 73 will be offered on site at The Centre.
In addition to the 73 on site program offerings 29 programs will be offered offsite in conjunction with a partner organization.
Please see our website for a complete list of onsite proposed program offerings.
Two other matters deserve comment at this time.
Rumours are in circulation that The Centre has raised all its required funds. That is not the case. Fundraising continues.
As to local firms not working on the project, some local firms invited to submit bids, declined to do so.
