WHO WE ARE
The East Village Neighbourhood Association (EVNA) was formed in 2011 to make Calgary's Downtown East Village a healthy, safe, vibrant place in the heart of Calgary and is incorporated under the Societies Act.
As a neighbourhood association, EVNA champions the development of East Village as a thriving neighbourhood community. It works in partnership with a wide range of public and voluntary sector agencies to improve services and facilities for local people.
