About the HCA

(Above: The 2023-2024 HCA Board of Directors)

We are a not-for-profit, volunteer-led group of local citizens who are eager to make a difference by working with you or on your behalf to protect and enhance the quality of life enjoyed by residents, business owners, employees and visitors to our neighbourhood of Hintonburg in Ottawa, Ontario, Canada.

Ours is a very active community association with a hard-earned reputation for innovation, collaboration, effectiveness and fairness. Volunteers are the life-blood of our organization.
