Community Board Meetings

The Board of Directors meets ten times a year, generally the first Monday of the month at 6:30PM. Residents have in the past been welcome and encouraged to attend these meetings. They have been held over the past few years at the City of Calgary office in the Georgina Thomson Building on the corner of 14th Street and Northmount Drive. Due however to COVID-19 protocols, the City has limited the occupancy of this building such that Board meetings have been returned to the Community Hall at 600 Northmount Drive.
The Community Hall, being City-owned, is a mask required facility unless there is an event closed to the public. We are therefore requesting, while we continue to combat the COVID virus crises, that residents refrain from attending these Board meetings for health safety reasons. Should you have a specific issue to bring to the Board’s attention please contact the President of the Community Association at president@cambrianheightscommunity.com and special arrangements will be made to address your issue(s).
We thank you for your consideration of this request.

Fall BBQ Cancelled

Due to uncertainty in regards to the Community Hall re-opening and limits on gatherings, combined with the level of protocols and health guidelines mandated by Alberta Health Services in response to the COVID-19 virus, we have cancelled our Fall BBQ scheduled for September 19.

We hope to be able to resume this event in September 2021.

Update Due to COVID-19 Virus & Governmental Actions

With the worldwide pandemic caused by the COVID-19 virus, various human interaction and hygiene advisories were put in place by the Federal, Provincial and  Municipal governments. These advisories were rapidly followed by specific shutdowns of non-essential business, educational and recreational activities. Included in these mandated closures were the Calgary Community Facilities.

Cambrian Heights closed its hall doors the week of March 15 with the suspension of all social and recreational activities.

Our Yoga and Fitness programs have been switched to online activities and we invite you to access these programs by registering with Kyrsten (403-244-3001) for Yoga and Lorene (info@scarrybunnybefit.com) for Fitness.

The Community is continuing to provide financial support to both program directors and our Hall Manager through this period of distress. For existing rental inquiries or status please contact Lora at chca_hall@telus.net.

While the Edelweiss Preparatory School has been shut down the teachers continue to use the classrooms to provide online lessons.

All Events and other rental activities at the Community Hall have been suspended pending governmental direction.

As a result, the Board of Cambrian Heights has elected to cancel the Board meeting scheduled for April 6 and further to postpone the Wine Event highlighted in the April Newsletter for May 9 until the Fall. A decision on the holding of the Annual General Meeting scheduled for June 25, will be made later pending further information.

We anticipate the Community Hall will remain closed through April and May. This will also impact the holding of the Cambrian School Parents Yard Sale April 25 advertised in the April Community Newsletter.

We thank you for your understanding and encourage everyone to follow the various hygiene and stay at home guidelines being issued by the governmental health agencies to prevent the spread of this virus. Should you have any questions about activities in Cambrian Heights please contact us at cambrianheights@gmail.com. Should you have questions relating to testing or any issues relating to COVID-19 please reference the Provincial Government website at www.alberta.ca/covid19
