What A Community Association Is


Did you know that there are 150 community associations in Calgary that are run by your neighbours?

In fact, more than 20,000 volunteers are involved in community associations here in Calgary, making it the LARGEST collective volunteer movement in the city!

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.
