What is a Community League Membership?

At its simplest, the Thorncliff Community League (TCL) is a group of your neighbours who volunteer to organize events, activities and programs in our community.  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. TCL is bound on the North by 87 Avenue, on the East by 170 Street, on the West by 178 Street, and on the south by Whitemud Drive.

People living in Thorncliff who purchase a community league membership, help our Community League bring residents together, improve the community amenities, and enhance the quality of life for you and your neighbours. We do this through organizing recreational, education and sport programming, hosting community parties and events, developing and maintaining amenities such as our playgrounds, basketball court, skating rink, model car racetrack, and a community garden, and by being the voice of the community when it comes to civic matters that impact our neighbourhood.

The Thorncliff Community League is a member in good standing with the Edmonton Federation of Community Leagues (EFCL). To discover the many benefits of a community league membership visit EFCL.
