Special thanks to ENMAX and FCC for outdoor ice rink light fixtures

The Cambrian Heights Community Association would like to thank ENMAX and the Federation of Calgary Communities for their financial support in replacing our outdoor ice rink light fixtures with new LED lighting. The Energizing Spaces Fund provided by ENMAX and administered by the Federation has generously supported our Community in the past replacing aging electrical appliances. This grant allowed us to replace lighting fixtures that were over 20 years old and will provide substantial energy savings for the community over the winter months. This is the first step in the Community converting all its lighting usage to LED fixtures and further reducing electrical costs.

We invite all community residents to enjoy evening or daytime skating over the Christmas holidays and throughout the winter on our two ice surfaces behind the Community Hall.

Off-Leash Ambassador Volunteers Needed

The Off-Leash Ambassador program is an innovative approach with a volunteer-based, citizen-led initiative to promote responsible pet ownership in Calgary’s 150 off-leash parks.

Volunteers in the program will:

  • Promote responsible pet ownership, positive pet interactions and safety in off-leash areas through the provision of information and demonstrations
  • Answer questions regarding Calgary’s bylaws in off-leash areas
  • Act as positive role models in off-leash parks in terms of adhering with Calgary’s bylaws
  • Provide an avenue for citizens to express concerns and pass along concerns to City staff
  • Promote the work of Calgary Community Standards and the services available at the Animal Services Centre, such as animal adoption and licensing.

Ambassadors will receive training to familiarize themselves with bylaws, canine body language, as well as tactics to communicate with the public.
