Welcome to Southeast Vancouver
Seniors' Arts & Cultural Society

Southeast Vancouver Seniors' Arts & Cultural Society (SVSACS) is a group of dedicated individuals working to have a seniors' centre built in southeast Vancouver. The centre would house various arts and cultural activities for seniors, serving as a meeting and gathering place for older adults of all ethnic backgrounds. There is currently no seniors centre in all of southeast Van!

The number of seniors (55 and over) living in the Victoria-Fraserview/Killarney (VFK) has been growing faster than in all other areas of Vancouver. In 2006 there were 15,000 seniors in VFK. That number is expected to increase by 21 per cent (3,100) by 2021.

Killarney Seniors Centre Breaks Ground
"I've got to say it's been a long time coming," said Hartley, who's lived in the neighbourhood for 38 years — her parents moved to Killarney 60 years ago. Federal Minister of Defence Harjit Singh Sajjan, also a longtime resident of the neighbourhood opened the ceremony outside the gynmasium of the Killarney Community Centre, January 9.
