The Alexandra Centre Society (ACS) was created as a registered charity in 1975. The
Alexandra Centre, our building that we manage, has been at the heart and centre of
the community since 1902 – and when threatened to be no more, brought our
communities together to save a piece of our heritage. We are not a community centre,
rather the center of our community.
The ACS serves multiple communities and brings our communities together- rather than
focus on one individual community alone. Bringing multiple communities together
makes us stronger and allows for a larger reach in our City. The ACS helps support and
strengthen our communities coming together and we offer resources beyond what
local associations offer, and pickup the gaps where needed. We help engage more
residents in matters that affect us all.
We care for and protect a piece of Calgary’s history, while offering affordable spaces
for essential services. We help support the wellbeing of our residents with many helpful
and useful programs such as the CVITP tax program, Good Food Box depot, Food
Security hampers, engaging classes and camps, and community use spaces.
