St. James Community Square is a registered non-profit and charitable organization dedicated to providing affordable community space for educational, cultural, recreational and social activities in the heart of Vancouver’s Kitsilano neighborhood. We have about 5,500 people registered for, or participating in, programs at the site and our facility hosts about 500,000 user visits per year, including numerous special events.
St. James Community Square is an independent organization and does not receive subsidies for operating expenses. Capital upgrades and renovations are ongoing and have been carried out with assistance from various sponsors. Support from community members is extremely helpful in the ongoing efforts to maintain and upgrade the facilities. Your support can be shown by taking out a membership at a nominal cost of $5.00, or making a tax deductible donation.
St. James Community Square is easily accessed by the Broadway bus system (we are just one block off Broadway.) There is limited parking available at the back of the building and additional parking at the west end of the building, off the lane. During evenings and weekends, street parking is available, and there is a small pay parking lot behind the Western Bank accessed just off Trutch Street between Broadway and 10th Avenue that is available after 6:00 in the evening. We have bike racks at the front of the building and one in the lane. There is a wheel chair lift accessed via a ramp off of Trutch Street near the corner of 10th Avenue (please call or email for specific instructions.)
