Community Description

go to top ^

Whitehorn is located in Calgary’s northeast, southeast of the Calgary International Airport.  The Whitehorn area was annexed by the city of Calgary in 1961 and residential development began in 1973. Whitehorn has the distinction of being one of Calgary’s most ethnically diverse communities, with a large Chinese and East Indian population.  The community is well connected to the city, both through major roadways and the LRT line. Whitehorn is also near the Village Square Leisure Centre and Calgary’s bike path system. There are both public and separate schools in the area.

The Whitehorn community association offers a variety of programs to appeal to its diverse residents. Muslim groups, the Ismali 250th Scout Troop, the Immigrant Women’s Association and the East Indian Dholma Garaba Dance Troup all use the community centre as a meeting place.  The centre also hosts Girl Guide and Boy Scout meetings, as well as craft fairs, karate classes, and dances. These dances, which target Elementary and junior high students, are organized by the community’s popular youth group. The community hockey and pleasure rinks are also extremely popular among residents.
