The Fairhaven neighbourhood has a population of approximately 5,000 people and first officially appeared on city maps in 1971 with development beginning in the mid-1970’s with most construction in the area complete by 1985. There remained undeveloped lots on the east side of the community that in the early 2010s were filled with the relocation of six-plex homes from the former McNab Park neighborhood.

When Fairhaven first appeared on the maps, the street names all had one thing in common: they all started with the letter F. When the community was re-plotted in the mid-1970s, this was abandoned (except for Fairlight Drive and Fairmont Drive) and most other streets in the area were named for prominent city officials of the past, such as former city councillors S.E. Bushe, E.H. Crimp, G.A. Forrester, J.J. Olmstead, and James Priel.
