Our Mission

Centre Greene is an independent, not-for-profit organization with a strong commitment to its community dedicated to providing quality social, cultural and recreational services. We are open to the community at large regardless of age, gender, ethnicity, ability or socio-economic status. We aim to provide inclusive programs and services supporting education, informational programs on issues of interest, cultural activities; and to improve community physical and mental well-being through sports, recreational and leisure activities.

Centre Greene strives to be a welcoming community informed by our individual journeys and enriched by the thoughtful partnerships with individuals, groups, and organizations. We value the many identities that an individual brings to the community, and honor and appreciate the intersections of these identities.

Our History

The Greene Avenue Community Centre (Centre Greene) was established in the spring of 1989 by the local community who wished to utilize the three-story building constructed by the Westmount Rotary Club during the 1940s to house a Unity Boys and Girls club. It is situated on Greene Avenue below Dorchester, across from Stayner Park. The City of Westmount purchased the building from Rotary in 1993 and has a long term lease with us for a nominal rent. We are responsible for operating, financing and maintaining the Centre which has six main activity rooms and a gymnasium.

Our Programs

In order to fully accomplish Centre Greene’s mission, we believe that we must be aware of and responsive to the needs of everyone in the community whom we serve. We strive to create and implement programs using information and input from the communities we serve.

The Centre organizes and provides activities and events that are of benefit to the community such as a Senior Luncheon, Tumbling Tots, After School, Summer Camp, Friday Youth programs (TGIF) to name a few. In addition, we provide space at very affordable rates for a wide variety of suitable activities ranging from dance to music to daycare to volleyball. These are a source of revenue for us.  Information about current programs can be found here.

Our Future

Centre Greene has been providing a valuable service to the community for 25 years and counting. We are interested in developing social, cultural and recreational programs for all age groups. What do you think the community needs? We want your ideas and suggestions, even an interest in starting a program at the Centre. We are also seeking volunteers to help out in various programs and events at the centre. Please contact Heather at the Centre.
