Dear residents of Cardinal Creek,
I would like to take this opportunity to extend our sincere thanks and appreciation to Jason Morin who has been our CCCA webmaster over the last few years. Without Jason’s contribution the communications on community activities and information updates would have greatly suffered. We wish Jason well in all his future endeavours!
We are now looking for a new webmaster to fill Jason’s shoes. If you are interested in getting involved in our community, or know someone who might be, and have the skill to take this on, please contact me directly at firstname.lastname@example.org with your cv. We offer a stipend to our webmaster. Thank you.
Hello Cardinal Creek Residents,

I would kindly ask that you join us to celebrate what we have accomplished in our community (slide show), to say thank you to those individuals who have made a positive difference in Cardinal Creek, to celebrate the friendships that we have developed over the years and to continue to make our community a better place to live, work and play. I have attached below a partial list of 100 individuals who have contributed to our community over the years to recognize them. Thank you Continue reading

Earth Hour, organized by World Wildlife Fund, is a global grassroots movement uniting people to take action on climate change and protect the planet. Engaging a massive mainstream community, Earth Hour was famously started as a lights-out event in Sydney, Australia, in 2007. Since then, it has grown to engage millions of supporters in more than 170 countries and territories. As the movement grows, the one-hour lights-out event continues to be the symbol of a broader commitment toward the planet.
The CCCA strives to incorporate the principles of sustainable development in how we support our community. Earth Hour is an opportunity for all of us to reflect on what we can do—at home and in the office—to lessen our impact on the environment.
We encourage you to participate in Earth Hour at home and at your place of business this Saturday from 8:30 to 9:30 p.m. All efforts, big and small, add up to a significant benefit for the environment. We hope you will join us!
Park Naming Contest!
Name the Newest Park in Cardinal Creek
Park 18A, the newest, and last, park to be built in Cardinal Creek will be completed and officially opened later this year! It will be built adjacent to Cardinal Creek Community Park at 1825 Trim Road, and joined by an access road that has already been constructed. Now we need an appropriate name for this beautiful new park because “Park 18A” just won’t do! Submit your ideas by Monday, February 26 to Vice-President@cardinalcreek.org.
Check out plans for the new park at www.cardinalcreek.org.
Concours pour nommer le Parc!
Veuillez nommer le plus nouveau parc à Cardinal Creek
Le Parc 18A, le plus nouveau et dernier parc à être construit à Cardinal Creek sera complété et officiellement ouvert plus tard dans l’année! Il sera adjacent au Parc communautaire de Cardinal Creek situé au 1825 chemin Trim, et vous pourriez y accéder par une route déjà construite. Il est temps de trouver un nom adapté pour ce très beau parc! Parc 18A ne fait pas vraiment l’affaire! Envoyez-nous vos idées d’ici le lundi 26 février à Vice-President@cardinalcreek.org.
Consultez les plans du nouveau parc à www.cardinalcreek.org.
Do you have or did you have IKO/CRC/Canroof organic roofing shingles in Canada?
If so, you could be affected by a proposed class action settlement.
WHAT IS THE CLASS ACTION ABOUT?
The class action relates to the alleged negligent design and manufacture of IKO/CRC/Canroof asphalt organic shingles (collectively, “IKO Organic Shingles”). Specifically, the representative plaintiff alleges that IKO Organic Shingles were negligently designed and manufactured in a manner that, under normal conditions and usage, would result in premature failure.
IKO Industries Ltd., Canroof Corporation Inc., or I.G. Machine (collectively “IKO”) are the defendants in the class action. IKO denies all of these allegations and asserts that IKO Organic Shingles are free of any defect, and in fact, are good quality roofing materials. However, in order to avoid the significant costs of this litigation and achieve finality in terms of its ongoing obligations, IKO has agreed to a settlement that will resolve the class action. The settlement represents a voluntary resolution of claims. IKO does not admit any wrongdoing or liability.
