What is A Community League?
Community Leagues are unique to Edmonton. They are inclusive, grassroots, community-based organizations that are found in each of Edmonton’s communities. Community leagues facilitate healthy, safe, informed and connected communities by promoting participation in recreation, social activities, and civic advocacy at the neighbourhood level.
Community Leagues are managed by volunteers in each community; they come together to create a not-for-profit organization. As such, there is a level of legal, fiduciary, and moral responsibility that comes with sitting on a community league’s board of directors.
Municipal funds are granted to community leagues annually, based on the capita, or population, of each community respectively. These funds, in addition to league-raised funds, are to be used to provide programs, events, activities, and recreation for community members.
Oliver is the highest-density community in Edmonton. Consequently, we receive a good amount of funding to provide programs, events, activities, and recreation to our community. Some examples are: playgroup, yoga, Canada Day pancake breakfast, Community League Day, walking pub crawls.
