Community Leagues are volunteer not-for-profit organizations formed to meet the needs and purpose of residents within a defined geographic area. For nearly a century (the first League was founded in 1917), Edmonton's Community Leagues have provided their residents with recreational, sports, cultural, and educational opportunities. Community leagues also address local issues such as urban planning & development, crime & safety, and transportation. Leagues are recognized by the City as the primary speaking body for the neighbourhood. To learn more about the history of Edmonton's Community Leagues, check out Edmonton's Urban Villages by Ron Kuban.

In addition to providing programs and working on neighbourhood issues, the Queen Alexandra Community League participates in a number of broader initiatives.
