The community league has a tripartite agreement with the EFCL and City of Edmonton. Through consensus building, the community league provides a voice for homeowners at city council meetings. Membership with the community league permits children to participate in hockey and soccer. Individuals may swim at no cost at the Jasper Place pool at 9200-163 Street, from September to June, on Saturdays, 6:00 to 7:00 p.m. (bring your membership card). In the winter, members may skate at no cost on our community league ice rink. Also, members in good standing, after one year, may rent our community league hall. Click for more information.
