About the West End Community Centre Association (WECCA)

The West End Community Centre Association (WECCA) is driven by a volunteer board of directors – people just like you. WECCA operates in partnership with the Vancouver Board of Parks and Recreation to provide recreational, educational, and social activities and services including group fitness classes, community events, room rentals, pottery classes, language classes – even an ice skating rink! We offer these activities, plus much more, at Barclay Manor, Coal Harbour and West End Community Centres.

Our Mandate

Maintain a liaison and working relationship with the Vancouver Park Board staff, VSB, VPL, other community centres, and the West End and Coal Harbour community groups and agencies. Provide recreational, educational and athletic facilities and equipment for the residents of the West End and Coal Harbour. Promote, encourage, support and assist recreational, cultural, educational, artistic, charitable, sporting and community endeavors. Promote, foster and develop community spirit and good citizenship.

Our Vision and Mission

Our mission is to enhance the quality of life of the West End and Coal Harbour communities by providing recreational, educational, and social activities and services, which are accessible and responsive to the changing needs of the communities.
