“Change is in the Wind” is the consistent theme at our centre.

Active Net, the City of Vancouver online registration program, is now the primary tool for program registration. Work is progressing in terms of using the system for association bookkeeping, financial reports and the reconciliation of revenues owed to the association. Changes to technology, security of information collected and new financial reporting are ongoing.

Enrollment levels for Fall 2015 resulted in the cancellation of close to 30% of programs offered. At the same time some program areas, such as pottery and after school licensed care have waiting lists and capacity issues. The association is reviewing how best to respond and adapt to the needs of centre patrons.
Both federal and municipal governments are responding to recent changes. We all hope a change in the federal government results in the re-opening of the Kits Coast Guard station. Parks Board staff continues to change. We are hopeful for permanent staff early in 2016.
