About CICC

Supporting Italian-Canadian Cultural, Education and Social Organizations

"The objective of the Calgary Italian Cultural Centre is to preserve our Italian Culture and Heritage. The "Centre" is the meeting place for all that is Italian."

The Calgary Italian Cultural Centre is known as the "Centre". The Bocce Leagues host both men and women’s teams Monday to Thursday, October through May. The Italian School is open from September to June each year and offers classes from Kindergarten to Grade 12 with a fully approved curriculum by Alberta Education. Adult classes are offered in the evening. A number of Scholarships are available through the Centre and various regional groups under the auspices of the Centre. Pensioners will find the support they need. There are a number of social events throughout the year and of course, La Cantina Restaurant & Lounge is a very busy place to gather with family or friends!

There is much to celebrate at the Calgary Italian Cultural Centre - our roots, our history, our activities, our members, our families and our friendships! Our community comes together at the "Centre" every day for various reasons. There are ample good reasons to come and join us! Help us continue enriching the rich history of our community! As long standing members we are waiting to welcome you to the Calgary Italian Cultural Centre where we are who we say we are - all that is Italian!
