WHAT WE DO
The Martindale Community Association is a group of Martindale residents and volunteers who love our community and want to see it flourish. We are committed to improving quality of life, addressing concerns, building deep relationships within our community, providing opportunities for engagement, and having fun!
Some of what we do includes representing community needs to the City of Calgary, our Ward Councillor and Calgary Police Services, applying for grants and funding, as well as raising funds for community beautification, maintenance, and upgrade projects, creating and operating Martindale’s skating rink, organizing community and family events, giving input into the vision and operation of the Genesis Centre, providing information about community opportunities and programs, and addressing the concerns of other residents.
Martindale is located in northeast Calgary, north of McKnight, east of Metis trail, south of 80th Ave. The community was developed in 1983 and has continued to grow since then. Martindale is incredibly multicultural, with nearly 60% of it’s 15,000 residents being immigrants to Canada.
The community consists of many young families and is served by several schools (Crossing Park Public School, Ecole La Mosaique, Manmeet Bhullar Singh Public School, and Nelson Mandela High School). It is also home to the Dashmesh Cultural Centre (Sikh place of worship), the Church of Latter-Day Saints, a 7-Eleven convenience store, Petro Canada gas station, medical clinic, dental office, pharmacies, a hair salon, and Punjabi Chulha restauraunt, Sweet Shop and Grocery Store. The Genesis Centre, which serves as a Community Centre for the North of McKnight communities, is immediately next to the community, including indoor and outdoor soccer fields, a Calgary Public Library location, a YMCA, and several community services.
