“We want to thank you for all your assistance with planning the big 70th celebration on Feb. 8th 2014. We were very impressed with your thoroughness. It was also a pleasure working with the Centre’s staff - everyone was very helpful and professional. The tables looked beautiful and our guests raved about the food! - and the bartender made a mean martini!! Please extend our gratitude to all the staff. Thank you!”

"I held a recent workshop at the Latvian Centre in conference room "Venta". I wanted a facility that was close to a major highway, had free parking and good food. What I received from the wonderful people at the Centre and from Birches Catering exceeded my expectations. I had some specific AV needs and they were more than met, the food was out of this world (as I knew it would be) and my workshop attendees couldn't say enough about their experience. I have been to conferences across North America and as far as I'm concerned, the Latvian Centre is one of the most efficient, accommodating and amazing places I have ever had the pleasure to be in or work with. Many thanks to the fabulous people at the Latvian Centre for going out of their way to make sure my Workshop was a success. I’m looking forward to booking my next event with you".

"I want to thank You & your staff for making my sisters 60th birthday party a great success, the Chef & kitchen staff were very accommodating & helpful when we arrived. Your serving staff were awesome they took care of everything. The food was excellent and reasonably priced. My Wife and I are seasoned entertainers & have experience in serving and bartending so when we told our family & friends we were having the party fully catered at the Latvian Cultural Centre-not at our home, people were shocked. We wanted to do something different and be looked after for a change. Thank you for a great party experience. I will recommend your hall to anyone who wants to have a function and be well looked after."

Cheers, Neil Cooper

"I just wanted to send a note to say how grateful we are to the staff of the Latvian Centre! We had our wedding ceremony and reception at the Latvian Centre and I couldn't have asked for a better day. Every last detail was taking care of to perfection! The décor was beautiful, the food was amazing and all the staff were friendly and efficient. The grounds are also beautiful to take pictures in with all the trees and flowers! Our favourite spot was the park because it added a lot of fun to the wedding pictures! Our family and friends had a wonderful time and had nothing but great things to say. We would recommend the Latvian Centre to anyone who is getting married."

Thanks again! Melissa and Ryan Morton
