Our Community Association
We’re run by a Board of volunteers who meet on a monthly basis. Together with other volunteers in the community, we look after the recreational facilities, set up and run social events and various activities, and organize annual community clean-up events. The Board is elected at the AGM held in June. Our By-Laws are here. For a more in depth look at where we are as a community and our direction for the next few years see our Shaganappi Business Plan here.
We also help you keep your finger on the pulse of key local issues – from safety in the neighborhood to plans for new buildings in the area. Join and sign up for our email alerts!

Shaganappi community hall is at the heart of many community events and informal gatherings of neighbors. It’s operated and maintained by volunteers in the community.
Nearby, there are recreational facilities, which are also looked after by volunteers. In summer, members can make use of two tennis courts, a full basketball court, as well as a volleyball net. In winter, volunteers create and maintain multiple ice rinks and a skating path at the bottom of the fabulous sled hill. In the fall, it’s become an annual tradition to hold “Shagtoberfest” at the hall.
There is also an extensive dog-leash park, children’s playground and natural gully close by. Alex Ferguson Elementary School is within our community, and we collaborate with the school on various projects, including the recent Little Free Library project, and the annual Gully Day the school holds in the Fall.
