Westsyde Community
Development Society

The Westsyde Community Development Society (WCDS) was incorporated as a not-for-profit society under the Society Act in May 2001 by a group of Westsyde neighbourhood residents.  Our mission is to enhance the positive development of the Westsyde community through initiatives, engagement and collaboration  The society’s registered Constitution and Bylaws reflect these objectives.

Annually the society executive, and its members meets monthly on the first Thursday of the month, ten months a year, (excluding July and August) to plan fundraising opportunities and organize events that enhance the live of residents in Westsyde. 

As a local oriented volunteer group, over the years we have become a resource for community concerns from community policing to traffic flow. We have been recognized as one of its premier community groups in the city and are often sought after for advice and suggestions from other community associations.

Being a volunteer run non-profit society,
                                ...help is always appreciated.
