Welcome to the home
of Canadian Latvians
The Latvian Canadian Cultural Centre is the heart of Latvian life in Toronto and Canada. Its mandate is to foster and sustain Latvian heritage and cultural traditions and to provide a venue for social and cultural exchange with other cultural communities in Canada. The non-profit Centre provides facilities for cultural, social, business and recreational activities for the general public and its members.
The Centre was incorporated in 1977 as a non-profit registered charity and the facility was purchased in the same year through fund raising drives within the community as well with the help of a Wintario grant. The building was remodeled and opened to the public in 1979. The Honourable William G. Davis, Premier of Ontario, and his Worship Mel Lastman, Mayor of the City of North York, officially opened the Centre in 1980. Since that time, the Centre has received two grants from the Trillium Foundation (2003/04 and 2008) as well as a grant from the City of Toronto (2007 Culture Built Grant) for capital improvements.

Where do Latvians charge their souls when the batteries are low? Here. Our land is our strength, our ancient songs – our guiding light. Latvia – our power-station by the Baltic Sea, in Northern Europe, celebrating one hundred years.
The Centre belongs to all of us!
The Latvian Canadian Cultural Centre has provided a place for our Latvian community to come together for 36 years. Our volunteers today continue to provide their services that continue to bring in strong revenue and assist in paying some of the costs associated with maintaining the building.
Donations from members and Latvian organizations in the past also assisted in keeping the Centre strong and viable. Unfortunately, as our community ages, and others move away from the Centre, resources to assist with the required upkeep of the Centre has also decreased substantially. Hall rentals and catering do not offset this loss.
LCCC Scholarship Fund
The Latvian Canadian Cultural Centre’s Scholarship Fund was established in 1986, to further student’s Latvian Studies. Since that time, $160,000 has been awarded in scholarships.
The 2018 Scholarship application is attached. Fully completed applications must be submitted to the Latvian Centre office by May 15, 2018.
We offer traditional Latvian foods freshly prepared in the Birches kitchen, including Baltic style breads baked on the premises as well as a wide selection of popular Latvian style pastries.
