The TGCA Business Membership
We at the TGCA are proud members of both the business and the non-profit community in Calgary. As such, we seek to enrich commerce, as well as overall quality of life in Thorncliffe, Greenview and within our membership. The business membership program is one of the ways we fulfill these aims.
The TGCA provides a variety of community amenities combined with an extensive array of programs and year-round events and activities to promote and support our members and others who come to share and use our facilities. We are an advocate for our residents, a partner with local businesses and a liaison to our city’s various departments. The development of our community requires that we recognize the diversity among us in order to achieve social, economic, cultural and environmental goals.
Your business membership will demonstrate to residents, volunteers and TGCA members that you and your staff value community building and investing in community is important to you.
Growth in the forecast
Our community is currently experiencing renewed growth as younger families move into our neighbourhoods. This is contributing to property modernization both through pre-sale renovations and from the investment of new homeowners. Schools in our neighbourhoods are also experiencing new growth, especially in the earlier grades. With the median age in our primary members’ communities shifting, we are committed to upholding our legacy of cooperation and support, while ensuring that our facilities remain well maintained, up-to-date, and a vibrant hub for residents, both near and in the greater Calgary area.
