Due to COVID -19, CreativeHub 1352 many programs and events have been postponed or cancelled until further notice.


CreativeHub 1352 (formerly the Small Arms Society) relies heavily on volunteers to plan and deliver programs and events throughout the year.  During this time, many of our dedicated volunteers continue to meet remotely via email, conference calls and mobile to ensure we are ready to deliver creative and engaging programs when activities are permitted.  
With the challenges of COVID-19 we have all been adapting to a new reality.  We wish everyone good health and safe practises during this unprecedented time. 

A special thank you to government officials, health care workers and all those who are working to help keep us safe. 
Remember to celebrate the small gifts in our lives.   Many less fortunate need our help so where you can please give your support. 

We will all get through this by working together!

Our Story

The Small Arms Inspection Building (SAIB) is a compelling, light-filled WWII heritage building with an essential connection to parkland, conservation lands, the waterfront, trails, and neighbourhood.

This historical and cultural landmark was saved from intended demolition through the efforts of Creative Hub 1352, a non-profit, community-driven organization. As a result, the City of Mississauga designated the property under the Ontario Heritage Act in 2009, who then acquired and began the restoration of the building in the spring of 2017. 

Together, we have been working with the City to represent the community in championing the preservation and adaptive reuse of the property. We initiated Creative Hub 1352 to provide an exciting space for individuals to connect, collaborate, and create within the building.

Come immerse yourself in the exciting opportunities that this beautifully reimagined space has to offer.


From spoken word poets to historians, makers to community shakers, technologists to visual artists, musicians to gardeners, environmentalists to designers - our Residency program provides an integrative collaborative space for all genres.

Apply to become a resident by December 1st.

Creative Hub 1352 wishes to acknowledge and honour the land upon which the Small Arms Inspection Building is situated as the historical and traditional territory of First Nation peoples. We recognize and thank the Anishinabek (Ojibway), Huron-Wendat, Haudenosaunee (Iroquois) and Mississaugas of the Credit First Nation for their stewardship of these lands over millennia and are grateful to have the opportunity to work here and continue to honour the heritage and build community on this territory.


Creative Hub 1352  is committed to ensuring that its internal policies and practices are free of barriers, emphasize the value of diversity, and promote full participation to ensure dignity, respect, and equal access for volunteers, participants, staff and residents. Through our processes and practices, we are working to eliminate barriers for people who are usually underrepresented in Canada’s workforce – Aboriginal people, those of the LGBTTQ2+ community, people with disabilities, racialized persons, and women.

Creative Hub 1352 operates at the Small Arms Inspection Building, owned and operated by the City of Mississauga.
