A community league is a volunteer, not-for-profit organization formed to meet the needs and interests of residents within a defined geographic area. Community leagues are recognized by the City of Edmonton as the primary speaking body for the community. A community league acts on behalf of its members. Any resident within the boundaries of the community may become a member.
Common functions of all community leagues include bringing neighbours together, providing recreation and social programs for its members, developing amenities (rinks, parks, halls, etc.), and representing the community at large on matters of interest to the appropriate order of government and other organizations.
Roles on the BCCL Board include President, Vice-President, Secretary, Facilities, Sports, Civics, etc. In addition to our BCCL Annual General Meeting, we hold monthly meetings every 3rd Wednesday of the month (except July, August, and December) at 7:00 p.m. We welcome and encourage residents to attend the meetings and become involved with the community.
The Blackmud Creek Community League is a member of the Edmonton Federation of Community Leagues (EFCL).
