What Is Community League Membership?
At its simplest, a Community League is a group of your neighbours who volunteer to organize events, activities and programs in your community, such as youth sport. The first Community League formed 100 years ago and today, there are 157 Community Leagues all across the City. Everyone in Edmonton lives within the boundary of a Community League.
When you purchase a Community League membership, you help your Community League bring residents together, improve the community amenities, and enhance the quality of life for you and your neighbours. Community Leagues do this through organizing recreational, education and sport programming, hosting community parties and events, developing amenities such as spray parks, playgrounds, sports courts, community gardens and community league halls, and by being the voice of the community when it comes to civic matters that impact your neighbourhood.
Some benefits available, regardless of which community league is yours, include:
Your league may offer other benefits, programs, or discounts with local businesses or services.
Please take the time to learn more about your community league and get involved. The best way to create the type of community you want to live in is to get active and get engaged with your neighbours and with your League. Check your League’s web site to see what else may be of interest to you.
