The Oaklands Activity Guide is produced twice a year by the Oaklands Community Association (OCA). The OCA has no political or religious affiliation and does not endorse any political candidate, political party, or religious group. Editor/Design/Production by: Allieren Ward Programs & Communications Coordinator General Registration Information: • Registration is on a first come, first serve basis and requires immediate payment. • If a program does not have the minimum number of participants registered two business days prior to the program’s start date, the program may be canceled. • In the instance of a program cancellation, a FULL refund will be issued in the form of original payment. Payment: • We accept cash, debit, VISA or Master Card. • All fees must be paid in full at the time of registration in order to secure a space in a program. • Registrants eligible for L.I.F.E. Program subsidy must be authorized through Crystal Pool prior to program registration. Refunds: • If after attending the first class you decide a program is not right for you, the Association will be happy to issue a pro-rated refund. This request must be made before the second class. • For programs that are only a day in length, refunds will only be issued for withdrawals made three business days in advance of the course date. • Refunds will generally not be issued for any program that a participant withdraws from after the second class. Special circumstances may be considered and may require a note from a medical professional. • In all cases where cash transactions occurred, refunds will be paid by cheque and may require a delay of up to 10 business days for processing. If fees were paid using a credit card, refunds will go back to the same card that was used to purchase the program. We require a minimum number of registrants to run our programs.

Since 2012, OCC has been a part of the Climate Smart program and we are striving to reduce our carbon footprint and environmental impact. Through Call2RecycleTM many toxic materials and useful metals can be kept out of the landfill and reused. We will send them away for safe recycling.

PCEC “1000 X 5” Children’s Book Recycling Project Grab a pack of books the next time you come to the Oaklands Community Centre, generously given to our community by the PCEC’s “1000x5” project. Through this initiative, gently-used children’s picture books are collected from the community. The books are delivered to the PCEC’s collection depot where they are screened for suitability, counted, labelled, sorted, and bagged for distribution to young children (birth-5 years) and their families.
