RDN takes over Cedar Heritage Centre in Electoral Area A 

Duties of maintaining the day-to-day operations of the Cedar Heritage Centre will now fall to the Regional District of Nanaimo. 

This is part of a long-standing agreement the RDN has with the Cedar School and Community Enhancement Society (CECES), which the RDN says they have excelled at running and serving in the community of Cedar. 

According to the district, CECES has been running for close to three decades and has built a strong connection with the community in Electoral Area A where they [CECES] built a school that doubles as a community centre. 

Area A director Jessica Stanley says the society has done so much for the area and taking this on is a small price for the large amount of work CECES has done for the area. 

“I want to extend my heartfelt thank you to the Cedar School and Community Enhancement Society,” she says. “The many volunteers have made the Cedar Heritage Centre a much loved, and well-used, community space.”

She adds having community areas really binds the area together and plays an important role in maintaining healthy connections and building lasting relationships. 

“Public spaces such as these are essential for building and connecting the community,” Stanley says. “I look forward to many more years of Cedar residents coming together at the centre.” 

The society is scheduled to dissolve at the end of June, but the centre is scheduled to remain providing a space for community gatherings and rentals.
