HVRA Events

The HVRA brings residents together in seasonal family-friendly events: the Fall Fair in September, the PumpkinFest on November 1, the Neighbourhood Yard Sale in May, and the Plant Fair in June. Two public meetings each year host relevant speakers.

Advocacy Projects

The HVRA advocates for residents when issues need a coordinated response. Projects include Greening, Heritage protection, and Planning and Development. We also help residents deal with urban concerns such as graffiti, noise, and traffic.

Other Local Groups

HVRA connects with other volunteer groups that enhance neighbourhood life. The ones listed here sponsor weekend swims, support local parks, organize recreational activities, and coordinate a Farmers’ Market Wednesday afternoons from June to October.
