Community Services Programs

Promoting Health and Well-Being Across the Region

The County’s Community Services department provides a spectrum of customized services designed to enhance the capacity of community leaders, organizations, and individual residents to achieve their goals, address community issues and make a positive contribution to the region.

Community Services provides quality programs and services through collaborative partnerships and strategic alliances with community groups, non-profit organizations and residents.

Parent Link/ECDI Programs Cancelled

The County learned in late 2019 that provincial funding affecting its Parent Link grant, Early Childhood Development contract, and Early Childhood Coalition of Alberta (ECCA) grant would not be renewed after April 1, 2020. Unfortunately, no further Parent Link/Early Childhood Development programs or services will be helduntil further notice.

How this funding cutoff will affect Community Services programs has yet to be determined. Please be patient as we strive to find answers and solutions to this matter. In the meantime, our early childhood programming continues to be an asset in many local communities. Come out and join us – we'd love to meet you and your family!

Making a Positive Contribution to the Lac Ste. Anne Region

The Community Services department builds capacity within the community to improve the quality of life of all citizens, and strives to build a future full of opportunities for all.

This Department is responsible for the development of all regional community parks, recreation and cultural facilities, but also has the honour of working with diverse community groups, individuals and government agencies to ensure that there is always something fun and exciting happening in this unique part of Alberta.
