The Shawnessy Community Association

Volunteers serving in the spirit of community

The community of Shawnessy in Southwest Calgary began building in 1981, though its roots began much earlier. Named after British settler Samuel Shaw, who built a log house near Fish Creek in 1882, Shawnessy's history lives on through the almost 100 year-old building that is now home to the Shawnessy Community Association. The Shawnessy Barn remains a historical landmark in the midst of a beautifully treed 17-acre green space in the heart of Shawnessy.

The Shawnessy Community Centre Association (SCCA) spends a great deal of time working on behalf of the entire community as a strong voice on issues such as development and planning, traffic and transportation, recreational facilities and programs, safety, municipal by-laws, and community affairs. One of the goals of the community association is to continue to increase membership and involvement of its residents to ensure continued success in building a close knit, and safe community.

All visitors are welcome to explore this site and learn more about Calgary's vibrant southwest community.

The SCCA works closely with the City of Calgary to represent the concerns of the community residents.

The Shawnessy Community Centre Association has the following objectives:

  • To provide for the recreation of the community and to promote and afford opportunity for friendly and social activities
  • To provide a building or buildings for social and community purposes
  • To provide a meeting place and a forum for the consideration and discussion of questions affecting the interests of the community, and for other various activities in the community
  • To encourage, foster and develop among the membership a recognition of the community and its environment
