Social Advocacy

As you likely know, the Oliver Community League’s boundaries include an incredibly diverse population of people. With residences ranging from costing millions of dollars to subsidized housing, the demographics of our community are significantly varied.

OCL has advocated time and again for building developments that meet the needs of our community. While dwellings that accommodate families, reflect the needs of lower incomes, and satisfy the visual identity of our community have been lobbied for by OCL, the league is now going a step further with its Social Advocacy Committee.

This committee, chaired by OCL’s Vice-President, Craig Lidstone, is currently comprised of people that work on the front lines with Edmonton’s impoverished citizens.  The Social Advocacy Committee will advise the Board on how OCL can partner with and support local agencies that endeavour to provide necessary services to OCL’s disadvantaged or isolated community members.
