Celebrating Communities

Community Hero Awards

Along with our proud sponsor Toole Peet Insurance, we would like to recognize the many unsung heroes who make OUTSTANDING contributions by volunteering in their communities through their community association.

Faces of Community

We launched Faces of Community in 2017 as part of our March Community Association Awareness campaign, to highlight the many different faces of community volunteers making a difference in our city’s communities. We often hear that Calgarians don’t realize that their community organization is run by volunteers from the community, so Faces of Community helps tell the story of just some of the more than 20,000 community volunteers in Calgary who are donating their time each and every day to help improve neighbourhood life in Calgary.

Nominated by their peers, the annual Faces of Community come from community organizations across the city, and all have different and inspiring stories of how they got involved, what they’re proud of, and what motivates them to stay involved.

Get Engaged! Bi-weekly Newsletter

Get Engaged! is our bi-weekly e-newsletter that is sent to over 2,300 individuals including all community association board members as well as our partners, sponsors, donors, City Council, and more. The e-newsletter contains small bite size pieces of information of interest to our members, directing the reader to our website or other websites for more information.

March Community Association Awareness Month

Every year Mayor Nenshi proclaims the entire month of March as Community Association Awareness Month! There are 152 community associations in Calgary, made up of over 20,000 community volunteers!
