Who We Are

Located in Downtown Squamish, The Hotspot is a centre operated by local non profits through the help of dedicated volunteers and grants.  In our storefront you’ll find a full service computer lab and community bookstore, but there is much more happening behind the scenes!  The Hotspot is also home to the Squamish Volunteer Centre and the Common Ground Welcome Centre and facilitates many programs and services in Squamish in order to accomplish its mission: To connect people to community through volunteering, technology, and learning!



We help the public become more aware of and connected to community through grassroots programs and services!


We connect locals to volunteer opportunities and facilitate many volunteer run programs and services of our own!


We bridge the digital divide by providing affordable access to computers, free tutoring, and online tools!


We provide opportunities for people from all walks of life to learn about technology, literacy, and community!
