"When a community is striving for wellness they need that shining star or light house that they can look to as a guide – Vivo is that guide providing a common bond for all of us. To keep that light shining we need to take the next step and make it even brighter."

Surinderjit' Stan' Plaha, President, North Calgary Cultural Association

Why expansion?

amanda
Space to learn and grow

Your generosity ensures Alta and Amanda can register their daughters in swim lessons to acquire critical life skills without having to coordinate their registration with military-precision and often still ending up on a waitlist.

Space to belong

Your care means this diverse community can finally celebrate Diwali, Lunar New Year, Eid, Christmas and many other holidays and events together.

Space to be healthy

Your compassion means Surinderjit 'Stan' and other hardworking volunteer-leaders in this community have space to support the community's social, mental and physical health without waitlists or needing to leave the community to find space.

Uniting all ages, cultures and abilities

"We love Vivo because the people are kind, the facility is vibrant and the organization is steeped in purpose. Vivo has become a hub where we choose to spend time strengthening relationships with our family and friends."

Accessible, inclusive and sustainable spaces

Imaginations will soar in a first-of-its-kind Indoor Park

A literal moving indoors of an outdoor park space. This will give our seniors a place to walk, a young mom a place to take a break and read a book and our diverse community a place for cultural celebrations of all kinds.

Build healthy habits in the 60% larger Fitness Centre

This expansion will focus on fitness for life and building healthy habits.  It will create an environment that encourages and celebrates the social aspects of fitness and group training while also providing experiences that encourage quiet time, meditation and relaxation.

Life skills in the new pool

This six-lane pool will eliminate the large (over 1,000 children) waitlists that we carry each session, and the gradual entry makes it accessible for all. The sauna, steam room, and fireplace will be a suburban spa experience.

Stretch your curiosity in the Research and Innovation Lab

Vivo is a national leader in social research and innovation. These spaces will help community leaders identify common challenges, work together towards a solution, measure their success and capture their learnings.

Connect in four new community rooms

These rooms will be places you can celebrate life’s moments, big and small. Spaces to host events/meetings for up to 150 people. Support two of our volunteer-run seniors groups to stop waitlisting seniors for their programs due to lack of space

Gather outside in the community hug and outdoor plaza

A town square for the community – An outdoor space to hang out, meet up and gather in small and large groups and host events.
