About us

The purpose of the Forest Heights Community Association is to promote health and wellness primarily for the residents of the communities known as Forest Heights and Forest Hills to support overall community development.

We are a volunteer not-for-profit organization, providing social and leisure opportunities for the Forest Heights and Forest Hill Communities and surrounding areas.

From 1998 until July 2023, we operated in the Forest Heights Community Centre (FHCC). As of August 2023, we are not currently operating in the Forest Heights Community Centre.

Board of Directors

The Board of Directors meets regularly each month from September to June. The Board is made up of volunteers. Members are elected and appointed for a one-year term at our Annual Meeting every January.

Members of the public are invited to attend the Annual Meeting. Members of the Forest Heights / Forest Hill communities are eligible to vote, make a nomination, or stand for election for open Board positions.


These are the minutes from our Board meetings.
