In 1952, a vision began to take shape in the heart of St. Boniface, Winnipeg, when a group of dedicated community members came together to create a space that would soon become the cornerstone of their neighbourhood. Their dream was simple but profound: to establish a place where the community could unite, grow, and thrive as one. And thus, Archwood Community Center was born.
The center's journey started on the grounds of what is now Archwood School, marking its first step in becoming a vital part of the community. Over the years, Archwood moved locations, adapting and expanding to better serve the ever-evolving needs of its residents. In the late 1990s, a significant transformation began, leading to the grand opening of a modernized facility in June 2001. With a rich history of growth and development, Archwood Community Center continued to fulfill its commitment to the neighbourhood, becoming a beacon of unity, health, and support for all.
Archwood Community Center's mission is to serve as a steadfast pillar in St. Boniface, providing a vital space for the community to unite, learn, share, experience, and flourish together. Our commitment is to enrich the community, contributing to a stronger, more vibrant future.
Archwood Community Center is committed to core values. First, we focus on Fostering Community Engagement by organizing various events that bring our community together, building lasting connections. Secondly, we prioritize Youth Development, offering programs like sports leagues and leadership initiatives to empower the next generation. Lastly, we ensure Accessibility and Inclusivity, striving to make our center accessible to everyone, regardless of their age, ability, or background. Embracing diversity and inclusion strengthens our community's fabric and makes Archwood a welcoming space for all.
