West Hamilton features two of the city’s most distinctive and attractive areas: the McMaster University campus and the Ainslie Wood/Westdale commercial and residential neighbourhoods. These two areas form one community with common concerns, issues, challenges and opportunities. A number of leaders within this community have come together with a vision of fostering and building one of Canada’s great campus neighbourhoods. Campus Town Association (CTA) is made up of McMaster University, the Ainslie Wood/Westdale Community Association of Resident Homeowners (AWWCA) and the Westdale Village Business Improvement Association (BIA). Civicplan worked with the CTA to gather community input on neighbourhood priorities and to help strategize the implementation of their vision, mission and objectives.
