WHAT WE DO
One of the main roles of the CHSCA has been to strengthen our community spirit by hosting two annual community events: the Summer Sizzler and the Winter Classic. The Summer Sizzler, which has been held ten times since 2007, includes events such as a barbeque provided by Enbridge Gas, an outdoor movie on the wall of Le Prélude school, games for the kids, wagon rides, overnight sleepover in the park (discontinued in 2011), and exhibits by local merchants. The Winter Classic has been held five times in the past ten years. Activities have included a barbeque provided by Enbridge Gas, free hot chocolate, shinny hockey and other on-ice activities. In years where the Winter Classic was not held, the Association has provided hot chocolate on Hockey Day in Canada. The CHSCA has also partnered with our friends at the Cardinal Creek Community Association in a friendly challenge cup hockey game.
Another role of which we are quite proud is that of providing a voice to residents of Chapel Hill South on a variety of local issues that impact our community such as traffic and public safety, crime prevention and growing local development. Our voice has also been heard on broader City-wide issues such as the expansion of light-rail transit (LRT), the Kettle Island bridge proposal and the development of the health hub on Mer Bleue Road. More recently, we have been involved in issues such as the Brian Coburn extension through Chapel Hill South to Navan Road, the permanent closure of Pagé Road, the new Park & Ride on Navan Road and all of the traffic and transit issues that go with these major initiatives.
In May, 2017 we celebrated Canada’s 150th anniversary with our partners at L’École élémentaire publique Le Prélude and the Chapel Hill Retirement Residence with our 11th Annual Summer Sizzler Party.
The CHSCA is pleased to work closely with our neighbouring community associations on many of the aforementioned issues. Our president sits on the Board of the Friends of Mer Bleue (Notre-Dame-des-Champs) and on the Council of Community Associations set up by Councillor Jody Mitic. The latter includes representatives from the following Community Associations:
- Chapel Hill South
- Chapel Hill North
- Bradley Estates
- Blackburn Hamlet
- Friends of Mer Bleue
