Enhancing the Lives of Calgarians for more than 50 years.

Since 1970, the Lake Bonavista Community Association (LBCA) has been a staple in south Calgary, enhancing Calgarians’ lives through various programs, events, and activities.  

Over the years, the 65,000-square-foot recreation complex has welcomed guests from all walks of life for drop-in activities, seasonal programs, hockey games, figure skating, fitness classes, day camps, and more. But, after more than 50+ years in operation, it is time to refresh the brand identity.  

The LBCA is a non-profit registered under the Societies Act of Alberta and a charity registered with Canada Revenue Agency. The organization is managed and operated by a team of passionate professionals and governed by a volunteer Board of Directors elected annually by its membership.
