Italian Cultural Centre - PartnerThe 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 Italian culture, values and heritage and to share these with other communities.” We have since grown to more than 700 member families and regularly welcome individuals and groups from across the city. Whether for our exceptional catering and banqueting facilities, our language classes or our breadth of cultural activities, Il Centro 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. Our Mission: To promote Italian culture, heritage and values and share these with other communities.
