Craig Henry



Craig Henry is a residential neighbourhood in Knoxdale-Merivale Ward in the west end of Ottawa, Canada. It is located in the former city of Nepean. It is a residential subdivision that was developed from 1971 onwards. The neighbourhood is bordered by Woodroffe Avenue to the east, Greenbank Road to the west, Knoxdale Road to the south and the CN railroad separating it from Centrepointe and Briargreen to the north. The land previously belonged to the Craig Henry farm, and was developed by Jack Aaron. There are many different forms of houses in Craig Henry, including town homes, semi-detached houses, single homes and apartments. It is served by OC Transpo route 82 (former 172). A large sign with the name Craig Henry is found at the Greenbank Road entrance to the neighbourhood in the median of Craig Henry Drive. According to the Canada 2011 Census the total population of the neighbourhood was 6,593. Craig Henry has a significant Jewish population. The 2011 National Household Survey indicated that 12% of the Census Tract's population was Jewish. The neighbourhood is covered by the Manordale-Woodvale Community Association, which had to expand its borders to cover Craig Henry, due to a lack of a community association in the neighbourhood. On September 21st, 2018 Craig Henry along with the neighbouring area of Arlington Woods were hit by an EF-2 Tornado with winds reaching 225kmh. The Tornado caused extensive damage to many homes and businesses in both communities.
