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.




Meetings & Members

Westsyde Community Development Society WCDS

Next Meeting Date:

1st Thursday of the month

Hi there!
This is a friendly update from the Westsyde Community Development Society (WCDS). Our former meeting space, the Westsyde Neighbourhood Centre at 3550 Westsyde Road, has been commandeered by the School District and will be re-opening as a school. While it is great news to have a school opening in our neighbourhood, we community groups formerly meeting there will have to find a new home.

Thus, until further notice our monthly meetings (7:00pm on the first Thursday of every month)

will be held at The Hamlets at Westsyde, 3255 Overlander Drive. Our last meeting is June 6, 2019 and we hope to see you there!

Meetings are held on the first Thursday of the month
(10 times a year from Sept. to June)

(Westsyde Residents)
We are always looking for more community involvement: just come and meet us, tell us your idea or area of concern, make a suggestion, donate time or funds if you can, or just help out at an event like the Yard Sales.

Contact us if you want to speak at a meeting.

“Together we're better”
