Southwood relies on volunteers to help plan and run events, fund raise and more. 


This is our biggest event each year, a free community festival with music, food, kids' activities, a beer garden, vendors and more. Sign up for a shift online and you’ll receive a ticket for a sausage, a piece of rhubarb pie and a drink, as well as our unending thanks.


Southwood residents - we need your energy, expertise and ideas on our Community Association’s Board of Directors, starting at our Annual General Meeting on June 13. A desire to have a positive impact on the daily lives of your neighbours is far more important than any previous board experience.

Many of our existing board members have served for many years and are in need of a well-deserved break. Please get in touch with President Ellen Close at president@southwoodconnects.ca or 403-826-6797 to discuss these or other positions:

Secretary - A member of the Board Executive responsible for distributing agendas and taking minutes at our meetings. If you enjoy taking notes, this could be a great role for you! If you’re not already familiar with the usual format of minutes, we can easily teach you.

Director of Membership - This dynamic role requires someone who can think creatively about new ways to engage residents as community association members, including through our annual membership drive.

Join the program committee

If you are interested in expanding the range of events and programs being offered by the community association, please contact programs@southwoodconnects.ca. We would love to grow the variety of items we offer to reach out to the wide demographics and varying interests that exist in Southwood. Joining the programs committee would not take very much of a time commitment but the reward of creating activities that are enjoyed by members of our community is very worthwhile!

Volunteer at our fundraising casino - september 4 & 5, 2019

Our casino event is the Community Association’s major source of funding, and we require many volunteers to make this event possible. You must be 18+ to volunteer, but no experience is necessary, with training and a meal provided. Sign up here!
