Did you know that March is Community Association Awareness Month,

as proclaimed by Mayor Nenshi?

Did you also know that there are over 150 community associations in our city, run by your neighbours and other volunteers in the community? In fact, the community association network makes up the largest collective volunteer movement in Calgary, with more than 20,000 volunteers involved!

Throughout the month of March we encourage you to “be part of it” and take a few minutes to find out what your community association offers you by dropping by or visiting them online. It’s easy and you may be surprised by the many benefits and options available to you as a resident.

Community associations exist in every neighbourhood in Calgary – they are run by your neighbours, they bring you together as residents, they act as a voice for your community, and they offer you endless opportunities right in your backyard, such as:

  • Soccer
  • Hockey
  • Tennis
  • Community gardens
  • Fitness classes (yoga, zumba, pilates, etc.)
  • Arts & culture programs
  • Youth programs
  • Community-wide events like Stampede breakfasts and movie nights
  • Language classes
  • Farmer’s markets and craft fairs
  • Senior’s clubs
  • Committee work (planning and development, special events, safety, etc.)
  • And so much more!

Most importantly, community associations are dedicated to making sure your community is a great place to live, work, and play. Purchasing a community association membership is a great way to get involved and show your support for the many ways your neighbours work to ensure you love where you live. Even better? Community association memberships are extremely affordable, with the majority being only $30 or less per year.

Your community association wants to get to know you and hear from you. They want you to feel safe and love where you live. Most importantly, they want you to be part of it! So take a minute during March Community Association Awareness Month and find out more about yours and how you can get involved.
