What does the Carlington Community Association do?

This is probably one of the most asked questions. In a nutshell, the CCA performs three primary roles:

Advocacy: promoting, mobilizing and engaging our community.
Connectivity: providing a forum for individuals to engage on matters they share in common.
Education: gathering, housing, producing and sharing knowledge.

What are your goals?

Members of the CCA have an ambitious agenda to celebrate and improve our community.All of our activities can be classified under one of the following five overreaching goals:

  1. Make Carlington a greener community.
  2. Make Carlington a safer community.
  3. Build a strong sense of community.
  4. Attract positive development and maintain the best of our community.
  5. Build a strong community association to serve as a catalyst for community improvement.
