Who We Are
Victoria Hills Neighbourhood Association (VHNA) is a non-profit organization whose main objective is to provide safe recreational, social and educational quality programs for all residents in the area.
VHNA is located in the Victoria Hills Community Centre (VHCC) which is featuring a single gymnasium, a double gymnasium, three program rooms and one preschool room.
VHNA runs at the VHCC a wide variety of programs:
dance for children: ballet, jazz, tap, hip hop
sports for children and youth
arts and crafts
VHNA also organizes annual events such as the holiday party and the spring garage sale.
The programs are coordinated by Victoria HIlls Neighbourhood Association (VHNA) while the Community Centre is administered, maintained and owned by the City of Kitchener.
VHNA is a non-profit, non-denominational, non-partisan and non-political organization that was formed in 1971 and has been involved since in the community recreational activities. VHNA operated 10 programs prior to the construction of the Victoria Hills Community Centre (VHCC) in 1991. The programs were run at various locations such as A.R. Kaufmann Public School, Monsegnior Gleason Catholic School and other locations.
After the construction of the VHCC in 1991 by the City of Kitchener, VHNA held its programs in the new building. In 2005 responding to the community's needs, VHCC underwent construction which resulted in centre's expansion.
