History:

Albert School was one of nine schools built between 1907 and 1914. The cornerstones for Albert and King Edward schools were laid the same day (in 1911), both were built to the same plan, opening for classes in 1912. King Edward was demolished in 1979, but Albert survived demolition when the school was no longer needed as a neighbourhood school by the Public School Board, and became home to the Saskatoon French School. Albert School is now the Albert Community Centre and thus still serves the same community as when it was built.

Albert Community Centre is now home to many varied interests, from a dance studio to daycare. Rooms can be booked for meetings or workshops, and the open top floor is available for booking large functions or events.


Mission Statement:

The primary objective of the Albert Community Centre Management Committee is to provide a publicly owned community centre which reflects the pride of heritage of Albert as a cornerstone for adjacent neighborhoods including but not limited to Nutana, Varsity View, Buena Vista, Haultain, Queen Elizabeth, Avalon, Grosvenor and Greystone.

The goal of the Albert Management committee is to ensure the public that Albert Community Centre is a friendly, welcoming and warm place to enter and participate in leisure activities or personal enrichment.

The building must be accessible to all citizens at all times of the year, safe, well-maintained, and affordable to tenants, renters and participants. The opportunities to participate should reflect the diversity of interests of the citizens of the surrounding neighborhoods and city at large.

Albert Community Centre is self-programmed with an emphasis on providing affordable space to non-profit organizations and similar low-cost activities run by private organizations or individuals.

The Committee should be sensitive to the needs of the day-time tenants in allocations of space to avoid unnecessary conflicts.

The ACC committee encourages the development of a cooperative atmosphere among tenants, renters and users of Albert, and the building staff, (custodial position and building management position) and the Management Committee members.
