Our New Home – 2023

Our future

411 Seniors Centre opened its new centre at 3502 Fraser Street in East Vancouver in March 2023. The centre’s inaugural grand opening event took place in September 2023 which hosted over 300 members, guests and local politicians.

Our New Home

Following years of consultation, 411 Seniors found the perfect neighbourhood for our future growth – Fraserhood, aka known as Cedar Cottage-Fraserview. Located in an area with one of the largest older adult populations in Vancouver without a seniors’ centre, this is the right place at the right time.

Our new home is a multi-purpose building near public transportation and showcasing green, accessible and senior-friendly design throughout almost 8,000 square feet. The building is digitally-wired so that older adults will have access to virtual learning, senior-led podcasts, video streaming, workshops on using technology, and digital tools.


The new building includes:

  Flexible space for events, celebrations, performances and town-hall meetings
  Private rooms for health consultations
  Kitchen/café, possibly with a nonprofit partner
  Mezzanine for 411 administration

Most of 411 programming occurs at the new building’s Drop-In Centre, the physical place where seniors help seniors and “someone to talk to” is always found.

The Drop-In Centre includes:

  Free computers, WiFi and telephones
  Educational workshops and seminars
  Recreational workshops
  Arts/cultural events and celebrations
  Fitness programs
  Food pantry

Facility use:

411 Seniors’ members will have the opportunity to rent the centre facilities for special occasions – birthdays, dancing and get-togethers. More details will be provided in early 2024.

Seniors Co-op Housing

We are pleased that the new building is co-located with 58 units of senior co-op housing operated by the Community Land Trust. This creates the area’s first model of integrating senior-focused services, facilities and housing to reduce isolation, develop connections and build community among residents, 411 members and visitors.

For information on the co-op housing, please contact Community Land Trust by phone at 604-879-5111 or by email at info@cltrust.ca or in-person at 220-1651 Commercial Drive, Vancouver, BC V5L 3Y3.

Naming Opportunities

To recognize the generosity of our community of donors, our Centre includes spaces available for recognition of your family or to honour a loved one, business or group.

Spaces in our new home, such as our fully accessible Welcoming Lobby, hosts our reception area and seating pods to visit with friends. With a double-height ceiling, this entry area is acoustically dampened so conversation is prioritized. A First Nations Art Installment is also a prominent fixture in the space as we collectively work towards reconciliation. This space and many others throughout the building are available for naming via a donation. For more information, pease contact executivedirector@411seniors.org.
