The Italian Cultural Centre, or Il Centro, has been an essential part of Vancouver’s cultural landscape for more than three decades. It opened in 1977 when its founding members, 13 existing Italian Associations, came together “to promote and share Italian culture, values and heritage with all communities.”

We have since grown to more than 700 member families and welcome individuals and groups from all ethnicities across the city to enjoy the centre and all it has to offer. Whether it’s our exceptional catering and banqueting spaces, our comprehensive language classes, or our breadth of cultural activities, Il Centro has something for everyone. It is one of the most cherished event venues in Vancouver, and a destination for those who appreciate authentic cultural activities.

Through our collective love of art, food, wine, design, film, music and literature, we proudly share our culture with our community, and welcome all who wish to be part of our vibrant destination in Vancouver.

"To promote and share Italian culture, values and heritage with all communities."
