The Bennett Centre

The Bennett Centre is located in the heart of Edmonton’s river valley and is a unique destination for field trips, day retreats, and overnight group accommodations.

For over a century, the Bennett Centre has been a place of learning and community nestled within the heart of amiskwaciwâskahikan ᐊᒥᐢᑲᐧᒋᐋᐧᐢᑲᐦᐃᑲᐣ (Edmonton). 

The crisis caused by the COVID-19 pandemic forced the Bennett Centre to close from early spring 2020 to summer 2021. This quiet time allowed for reflection on the Bennett Centre's past, and provided space to grow the Bennett Centre's relationship with education and community in a good way, and not mamesees (Cree: 'any old way'). 

Over the summer and into the fall of 2021, the Bennett Centre will continue a process of revitalisation. Its legacy will be celebrated and honoured as it reconnects to the traditions of the land on which it rests. This revitalisation will take some time, as we seek to do things in a good way. We thank our valued partners for their patience and support.

Please feel free to reach out to Bennett.Centre@epsb.ca with any questions or ideas. Thank you, and we look forward to welcoming you back to the Bennett Centre soon.



At this time, the Bennett Centre is not accepting new wedding bookings. If you're already booked in, we look forward to helping to make your big day special! For questions regarding your current booking, feel free to email bennett.centre@epsb.ca.
