Community associations are organizations formed when a group of residents in a defined area come together to address issues affecting its community. These issues can include traffic congestion, proposed developments, or safety concerns. Community associations bring concerns to Council's attention for consideration through meetings, letters and delegations at public council meetings. The leaders of the community associations also meet with council twice each year to discussed broader issues.
If you are interested in becoming a community association please review the policy and submit an application form. For more information please call 604-885-1986 or email email@example.com.
