Help shape the future of the site that currently includes the West End Community Centre, King George Secondary School, Joe Fortes Library, and other important civic facilities.

W.E. Connect is a project led by the City of Vancouver, Vancouver School Board, Vancouver Board of Parks and Recreation, Vancouver Public Library, and the West End Community Centre Association. This work builds on previous community engagement processes and takes direction from the West End Community Plan(External link)VSB Long Range Facilities Plan(External link)Vancouver Public Library Strategic Plan(External link), and VanPlay(External link).

This project will produce a renewal plan – a document that will guide and direct the future of the site’s buildings, programming, and outdoor spaces.

  • The West End Community Centre will be replaced to meet the needs of the growing West End neighbourhood, including renewal of an ice rink.
  • King George Secondary School will be redeveloped to provide more spaces for students and meet seismic upgrade requirements.
  • Joe Fortes Public Library will be expanded to provide a larger library space.
  • The renewed community hub will likely have combined and shared programming spaces. Other potential uses that could serve the West End will be considered for addition or expansion in the renewal plan, including a relocation of Firehall No. 6, childcare, seniors’ spaces, and arts and culture facilities.

Public Information Session on Visioning Results on December 8, which marks the final steps of the visioning work created with the community during the W.E. Connect engagement process. The framework will reflect our commitment to reconciliation and declare the purpose and aspirations of the future West End Community Hub and will help define space use needs for the site.

In early 2022, participate in in-person events and complete an online survey to further explore the community’s space needs.
