The Oak Hills Community League is a registered non-profit society, governed by a Board of Directors made up of volunteer neighbours who are passionate about their community. They meet monthly to discuss happenings in the community, coordinate neighbourhood programming or events, raise issues that impact their community, and plan the future of their area. The board is governed by the Oak Hills Community League Bylaws, which are available to review upon request.
