Community Description

go to top ^

Sunalta is located in Calgary’s southwest, just west of downtown.  Its name is likely a derivation of “Sunny Alberta.”  Sunalta was developed in two phases, first in 1909 and then in 1911.  The area was established as a residential community in 1912.  In the 1950s, Sunalta was rezoned and redeveloped to contain a number of apartment style walkups.  There is a separate schools in the area.

Since 1954 the Sunalta Community Association (SCA) has been building a stronger, more connected community by offering diverse and responsive programs and services. It operates a 100-year-old community hall and revenue generated through rentals is invested back into the community. Sunalta is a Community Hub and is working to:

  1. Create welcoming and inclusive spaces
  2. Increase access to supports and services
  3. Engage residents in the design and activation
  4. Create platforms to spark community economic development

The SCA is busy fundraising for a new Hub facility to fund and deliver programming for Calgarians. It will be a purpose-built facility that includes a commercial community kitchen, coffee shop, and programming spaces. The Hub is a social enterprise, with the income it generates going back into the community – allowing the SCA to continue offering events, programs, and services. Want to learn more?
