About HCC

Are you interested in volunteering in your community? Looking to build your resume? We are searching for new volunteer directors to serve on the non-profit board of the Hastings Community Association. The only requirement (other than holding HCA membership at least 30 days prior to election) is an interest in bettering the community centre and our neighbourhood. If you have experience or are looking to gain experience in the areas of finance, policy development, community advocacy, not-for-profits, or recreation, this is especially for you. Drop us a line at hastingscommunityassociation@gmail.com.


The Hastings Community Association is responsive to the community we serve and works with the Vancouver Board of Parks and Recreation cooperatively in order to provide for the community’s ever-changing recreational needs.

The general philosophy of the Hastings Community Centre is to offer a great diversity of recreational activities for all ages.
