Our Story
The Oak Hills Community League (OHCL) is a volunteer, not-for-profit society founded in 2009 by neighbours to meet the needs and interests of their community. We engage our community on issues and projects within our two neighbourhoods, Leger (Whitemud Oaks) and Carter Crest (Whitemud Hills). OHCL is recognized by the City of Edmonton as part of a network of neighbourhood-based organizations operating under the umbrella of Edmonton Federation of Community Leagues (EFCL).

We provide inclusive recreation and social programs such as sports, family events, community gathering, personal development opportunities, movie nights, and more. We endeavour to continue developing amenities that bring neighbours together such as a community building and grounds, rinks, playgrounds, tennis courts, and basketball courts. OHCL considers its members and the community at large when advocating on issues of interest to the appropriate order of government or other organizations regarding traffic issues, new developments, housing, crime prevention, and other community issues.
