Community Use Space

Making a space for everyone in the Jensen Centre

The BGC Central Vancouver Island welcomes a variety of community users and activities to the Jensen Centre. The Jensen Centre located at 132 Jensen Avenue East is available to book for diverse uses such as:

  • Meetings
  • Tradeshows
  • Sports groups
  • Community groups
  • Private parties
  • Celebrations
Space is also available for smaller events such as workshops, seminars, birthday parties, and casual use. The large auditorium or gym has a dropdown divider making two large spaces.

The community spaces are used for municipal, provincial and federal elections, blood services drives, reception centre in the event of an emergency, and meetings and public engagement such as town hall meetings.

Through recent renovations to the Jensen Centre, the facility has been refreshed with new kitchen equipment, HVAC system, fire alarms, updated flooring, paint, and a relaxing reading nook. Renovations also provide outdoor community use recreation space.

The Jensen Centre offers spaces which can accommodate small to large groups. To discuss your event, find out what options are available, and to checkout our reasonably-priced indoor spaces available for rent, please contact:
