The Centre partners with a variety of community organizations to provide services to the community, (e.g. seniors’ health and fitness classes, English language instruction for newcomers, and tax clinics for people who are low-income). The Centre is an accessible, multi-functional facility that provides program and activity spaces to the community at large.

Cecil Community Centre is an agency of the City of Toronto and one of the Association of Community Centres. The Association of Community Centres (AOCCs) is comprised of 10 volunteer board-run multi-purpose facilities providing a broad range of community, recreation and social service programs to residents in the local community..
