Local services, including community programs and events, are delivered through a variety of ways in Cochrane. One of these ways is through Community Associations. Community Associations are comprised of volunteers who develop and deliver programs within their own neighbourhood.
The Town of Cochrane provides a variety of supports to our local Community Associations. We recognize that the Community Associations are quite often the face of their neighbourhood. If a Community Association exists in your neighbourhood and you are interested in joining, use the contact information below.
Some neighbourhoods have community associations that help with local information, events and support.
