This Is Our Story

Strathcona is a neighbourhood in the beautiful city of Hamilton, Ontario, located in Ward 1, just northwest of the downtown core. It is located between Main St. and Hamilton Harbour, and Queen St. and Highway 403. We are a volunteer based collection of volunteers who strive to seek the best for our community.  We typically meet as an executive monthly to get Ward updates from our councillor, the community crime manager, and to discuss ongoing news and development in the neighbourhood.

We seek to

To gather and share information that concerns the neighbourhood;



To promote and plan activities that maintain and reflect the lifestyle of the residents of the neighbourhood. 



It’s important to us to ensure that we’re communicating news and issues to our community.  We’re on several social media platforms to enhance the message being received.

One voice

Bringing a voice for the community, concerns and celebrations, is what is important to us.  Have something you want shared? Visit our contact page.
