Bitcoin for Everyone

Bitcoin for Everyone

It’s fans say that it is a secure, stable alternative to banks, but to many of us it’s new and kind of weird. Learn about bitcoin from both sides and hear from businesses who accept it as payment.

Event Calendar

Event Calendar

The Strathcona Community Council seeks to accomplish two things for the residents that choose to use it: To gather and share information that concerns the neighbourhood and To promote and plan activites that maintain and reflect the lifestyle of the residents of the neighbourhood. We’ve had an event calendar on our website for a few years, but we want to make sure that we are doing everything that we can to promote all of the great things that are happening in our community. To view some of the upcoming events that are being promoted right now, click on this link. What do we promote? Throughout the year we organize events that are organized by our active volunteer base.  These events are organized and coordinated by our executive, often collaborating with community partners.  Recent examples include the 15oth Anniversary of the Crystal Palace, our annual Screen on the Green night every September, and our most recent Co-op Congress. We are open to promoting your events though! We are currently revising our submission guidelines for events, but in the meantime, if you have something that you feel needs to be promoted in our neighbourhood or in the city, please email the details to strathconacommunitycouncil@gmail.com, and ask our President Jonathan Thierren if it can be promoted on our website calendar.  We will try our best to get your submission up in a timely manner, and to help promote it through our community email updates, and our social media...
