A New Vision for Il Centro


The Italian Cultural Centre (Il Centro) has been exploring a renewal and redevelopment concept for our Slocan Street facility. To begin this process, we have begun a series of consultation sessions and events in an effort to gain perspectives and ideas on the redevelopment of this celebrated location.

It is our intent to garner all possible ideas, opinions and opportunities for this endeavor. We have engaged Bosa Properties to help carry out this process, joining forces on a legacy project for the Italian community.

What do you imagine for the future of Il Centro?

On October 3, members of the Italian community attended our first event – the Il Centro Ideas Fair – to share ideas about the revitalization of Il Centro.

If you were unable to attend, but would like to see the information presented, you can do so by reviewing the Ideas Fair Presentation Boards.
