About Us:

The Rosedale Centre, leveraging the physical facilities of Rosedale United Church, seeks to provide programs that engage the surrounding communities and that foster a strong, supportive, and inclusive environment where everyone has the opportunity to thrive. Arts, Culture, and Wellness programs will form the core of the activities.


While a non-profit organization, the Rosedale Centre seeks to generate revenues from on-site program and event operators, as well as participants/attendees, with the goal of helping to cover the overall costs of the 159 Roxborough Drive.
