The Phase 1: ARENA will have ice for part of the year and a dry floor for the remainder.
During ice season, a portable floor can be installed to accommodate many of the dry floor uses.

It is the hope of the facilities’ organizers that the West Coast Multiplex will be used as a multi-use meeting place and wellness facility for individuals and families of all ages.
Equal emphasis will be placed on:
Community events and celebrations
Teaching and training
A secondary benefit of the West Coast Multiplex is the possible use as a higher ground, emergency shelter.
A multi-use facility of this type does not currently exist in our area making it difficult to attract and keep families who desire a more active lifestyle supported by recreation facilities that are provided as a basic community service.
Since the referendum in 2012 securing the operating funds, the society has secured the land for a multi phased facility along airport road, and have the documents needed to support Provincial and Federal government capital fund requests.
Intended beneficiaries are all community members from youth to seniors.
Who Will Use the West Coast Multiplex?
Nearly 8,700 West Coast Residents as well as many of our 800,000 plus guests the West Coast hosts every year!! Email us to get involved email@example.com
