The Association is a volunteer, non-profit association sustained by the energy of volunteers and by fees and donations from members and friends of the AWWCA. We provide a forum for residents – both homeowners & renters – to communicate their concerns, with a collective voice, to the City of Hamilton, McMaster University, and other municipal groups and relevant jurisdictions in Ontario.
The AWWCA was established in September 1998 as a volunteer, nonprofit association. Our mission is to preserve, protect, and enhance the environment of the Ainslie Wood and Westdale communities and the quality of life for all residents, as well as to organize and lobby on behalf of the interests of members of the association.
We encourage you to become a member of the AWWCA, which will entitle you to vote at our meetings and to receive weekly email newsletters and other e-mail updates – these are an excellent source of information about our community that the local newspapers do not provide and connect you to resources to help you improve your neighbourhood and quality of life. At present there are approximately 540 members, and every voice, especially yours, is important. If you wish to join, please complete a membership form and return it with the membership fee to the address indicated.
The AWWCA is an active member of the Town & Gown Association of Ontario.
