My Great Neighbourhood Community Virtuals 

To help connect residents during these challenging times, the Neighbourhood Team is hosting a series of Community Virtuals Lunch & Learns. 

From the first session about how to get more trees growing in YYJ, to a documentary about loneliness and the value of neighbourhoods, to community art and how to engage your neighbours on new projects, the series has been designed to connect and inspire residents.

 Neighbourhood Boundaries 

In 2021 Council requested input from residents on a variety of proposed neighbourhood boundary adjustments. Residents shared their feedback on the proposed changes to boundaries in the following neighbourhoods: Fernwood, Oaklands, Jubilee, North Park, Fairfield, Downtown, Harris Green and Burnside Gorge. The Neighbourhood Boundaries survey closed on June 18.

You can view the engagement summary report here: 2021 Neighbourhood Boundaries Engagement Summary Report. View the Committee of the Whole Report, here.

In January 2022, the proposal to join the North Jubilee and South Jubilee CALUCs was removed. Read the Council Member Motion from January here.

Council has requested a non- statuatory Public Hearing as a final opportunity for people impacted by these proposed changes to share their feedback.  Click here to learn about the proposed changes and to learn about how to share your feedback on January 27, 2022.
