Activate movement, empower your community! 

ActivateYYC 2021 aims to start a movement that bridges the gap between Calgarians while creating a space where people of all backgrounds can come together to be a part of something transformative


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.
