Our history

In 2008, a group of dedicated community leaders in northeast Calgary came together with a singular goal: to create a space that fosters unity and cooperation among the diverse neighborhoods of Martindale, Saddle Ridge, and Taradale. This vision became reality with the establishment of the Genesis Centre of Community Wellness, thanks to a long-term partnership agreement with Genesis Land Development Corporation and support from Calgary City Council. Led by the North East Centre of Community Society (NECCS), this grassroots initiative not only meets the immediate needs for sport, recreation, and cultural services but also sets a precedent for collaborative efforts in building healthy communities. Today, the Genesis Centre stands as a testament to their dedication, serving as a vibrant hub where residents come together for shared learning, celebration and play.
