Britannia Community Background

Britannia is a residential neighbourhood in the south-west quadrant of Calgary, Alberta, Canada. It is bounded by Elbow Drive to the east, 50 Avenue S to the south, Elbow River and Riverdale Park to the west and Britannia Drive to the north. The area was annexed to the City of Calgary in 1910, and Britannia was established in 1956. Most of the development took place in the late 1950s.

The Britannia Community Association was established in the mid-1960s. Membership is open to all residents of Britannia, including home owners, renters, apartment, and condo dwellers. We operate mainly on revenue from membership sales and receive no government funding. The BCA is run entirely by a volunteer board of directors, elected at our Annual General Meeting in March of each year. We do not operate a community hall.
