Monthly Board Meeting

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 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, build and expand our events and programs, 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.
