Bronte Creek Community in Oakville Ontario

For a number of years this was the website for the Bronte Creek Community Residents Association. The Bronte Creek community in located in Oakville, Ontario, Canada. I have friends who have lived there for several years. Recently I was in Toronto attending a conference for custom software developers targeted for the healthcare marketplace. Since this is an area that deals with personal and financial data on a regular basis, security is a high priority for developers such as myself. Since many of the security breaches that happen are the result of hackers taking advantage of known weaknesses in off-the-shelf software that many organizations use, clients hire us to customized software that address their security concerns. The conference was about the new state of the art developments occurring regarding security software. After the conference I drove to Oakville to visit my friends whom I hadn't seen since they moved to Canada. We spent a day biking at the Bronte Creek Provincial Park which is very close by. My friends go cross country skiing there in the winter. Next time I am in the Toronto area I will definitely make the trip to Oakville to visit my friends again. If I am lucky it will be when the Bronte Creek Community Residents Association is holding their BCCRA Golf Tournament. Apparently the 2015 tournament was a big success.

Their current website with the most up to date news is at: www.bccra.ca/ or you can visit their Facebook page at:www.facebook.com/BronteCreekCRA where BCCRA residents can post ideas, thoughts, comments and to start Community related dialogue.

Binding Our Community

On behalf of the board, it is with great pleasure and pride that I welcome you to our new Bronte Creek Community Residents Association (BCCRA) website. Bronte Creek represents one of the most vibrant and beautiful neighbourhoods in Oakville.

We have all chosen Bronte Creek as our home because of its unique nature and tremendous potential.

Great communities do not just happen – they evolve through the respectful and cooperative efforts of those who live there. The BCCRA is focused on improving and enhancing the community we live in by encouraging open discussion of the issues facing our neighbourhoods (i.e. future schools, parks, traffic, development etc) and ensuring it is a safe place to live, work and play. The BCCRA’s vision of “Binding Our Community” places great emphasis on creating a community with a sense of belonging and spirit.

You are integral to helping the BCCRA achieve its mission to truly engage people who live here and your participation is crucial, whether it be as a volunteer or a member of the Association.

This new website has been specifically designed to be informative and interactive with the goal of maturing this community together. Please bookmark it and visit often! Information will be kept current and relevant by our webmaster, and it is my hope that it will be a focal point for all of Bronte Creek’s residents looking for information on what is going on, and how to get involved in making this the best community that it can be.

Thank you,

Board of Directors, Bronte Creek Community Residents Association
