Welcome back to Fairview!

The community of Fairview, established in the late 1950's, is experiencing something of a renaissance. Once aging and deteriorating, in recent years we have witnessed a remarkable regeneration of our arena, former community association building turned community arts centre and school yards and a revival of our community association. We have welcomed many young families in recent years and continue to welcome back those who left many years ago. We are riding a wave of momentum to continue regeneration of our parks and playgrounds, develop strong ties to business and community groups and serve our greater community.

Our Vision:

To promote and enhance a healthy, safe and productive environment for the residents of Fairview by providing access to programs, services and information, all while establishing a sense of community identity and belonging.
