District 8

Welcome to District 8 … a district made up of wonderful neighbourhoods – each one with its own unique personality and history.

Strong community connections help build safe, creative and vibrant communities so I encourage residents to meet one another by enjoying our neighbourhood parks, organizing neighbourhood street parties, or by simply taking time to chat with neighbours on our beautiful tree-lined streets. Please be in touch with your ideas, comments and suggestions on district and regional issues. I greatly appreciate being the representative for District 8 on Regional Council.
