Hastings Community Association

About HCC

Incorporated as a non-profit society in 1935, the Hastings Community Association (HCA) works in partnership with the Vancouver Park Board to provide recreation, social, educational and cultural opportunities in the Hastings-Sunrise area. The HCA provides subsidies for low-income users and emergency financial support to community programs. Through its activities and committees, the Association ensures that the community is represented at the Centre, Templeton Park Pool and in local planning & development issues such as the redevelopment of Hastings Park.


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.

Mission Statement

    4. And other events of social relevance to the community,
  3. Co-operate and maintain a close liaison with the Vancouver Park Board,
