The man that lifted a city

McConachie Heights is named after Grant McConachie, a pioneering Canadian bush pilot and aviation entrepreneur who lived in Calder (now a part of west-central Edmonton). His work in the aviation industry allowed Edmonton to become a hub for flights throughout western North America and, eventually, to Europe, Asia, and South America. His endeavours contributed to Edmonton’s explosive growth in the first half of the 20th century, making it one of the largest cities in the country.

New neighbourhood,
established schools

At McConachie Heights, your kids are part of a convenient community too. A new Catholic K-9 school, Christ the King, opened in the fall of 2017, just a 15-minute walk or 5-minute bike ride from McConachie Heights. Additionally, the K-6 Soraya Hafez public school is opened in September 2020, which includes proposed areas for a future community league, skating rink, baseball diamond, soccer fields, and playground. Spend less time taking your kids to school, and more time playing with them.
