About us

Located in downtown Squamish on the unceded traditional territory of the Skwxwu7mesh Nation, the Squamish Welcome Centre is a welcoming space for everyone. At the Squamish Welcome Centre, you’ll find the Hotspot Community Bookstore & Computer Lab, an activity space for events and programs, and there is much more happening behind the scenes. The Squamish Welcome Centre is also home to our partner, Squamish Newcomer Services, which provides support and resources for newcomers. Our front seating area is open to everyone and has free WiFi, so feel free to stop by and say hello!
