Our Community

Residents value its established single-family neighbourhoods, the newer communities of Champlain Heights and Fraserlands, and the busy commercial areas that provide convenient local shopping. The area’s two community centres and many parks are heavily used by residents. Many of our neighbourhoods have unique local identities and a strong sense of community.
