Vancouver, British Columbia, July 1, 2022— Today, the Honourable Harjit S. Sajjan, Minister of International Development, Minister responsible for the Pacific Economic Development Agency of Canada and Member of Parliament for Vancouver South, on behalf of the Honourable Dominic LeBlanc, Minister of Intergovernmental Affairs, Infrastructure and Communities, announced additional support for a new seniors centre in South Vancouver. In addition to the funding announced in 2021, the Government of Canada is committing an additional $5.2 million in funding, approved in principle, which brings the Government’s total support for this project to over $10.5 million.

 The Sunset Seniors Centre will help meet the neighbourhood’s growing needs for a facility dedicated to community, culture, and recreation programs for seniors in South Vancouver. 

The new 10,000 square feet seniors centre will be adjacent to the existing Sunset Community Centre. It will include multi-purpose dining and event rooms, two activity rooms, a fitness room, a commercial kitchen, a lobby and café, a lounge area, administrative space, as well as outdoor spaces for walking, gardening, and gathering.  The new centre will welcome seniors with a wide range of interests, abilities, cultures, and languages, enabling them to enjoy the rich diversity of the neighbourhood.

The Government of Canada has approved in principle a total of $10.5 million, and the City of Vancouver has provided $3.1 million towards the project.
