All About Oaklands The Oaklands Neighbourhood Located in the north-east corner of the City of Victoria, Oaklands is one of 13 neighbourhoods in Victoria. The population was approximately 6,825 in 2011 which was 8.5% of the City’s total population at the time. Oaklands is part of the ancestral territories of the Coast Salish peoples who managed the Garry Oak and camas meadows in the area. The majority of suburban development took place during the post World War II building boom. Bowker Creek, which once supported populations of cutthroat trout, coho, and chum salmon, was diverted and buried under the neighbourhood during this period. Oaklands has 14.5 acres of parkland, greenways, and boulevard gardens including two community parks (Oaklands and Hillside), two large neighbourhood parks (Oswald and David Spencer), as well as some smaller neighbourhood parks. Oaklands Elementary School, originally opened in 1913, continues to provide education to young children and serving as a resource to local community groups. The landmark Cridge Centre for the Family, BC’s oldest registered non-profit society, is also located in Oaklands. Oaklands has other heritage features including a number of residences and structures and the Jewish Cemetery which was established in 1860 and sits atop Fernwood Hill.

about the Oaklands Community Association The Oaklands Community Association’s vision is to provide a welcoming, engaging, sustainable community where all members can live, learn and thrive. We are proud to serve the Oaklands neighbourhood and our patrons from Greater Victoria. The Oaklands Community Association was established in 1995 by a group of committed citizens. Our first facility, the Oaklands Community Centre, opened its doors to the public in 2001. We opened our second facility in 2010, the Oaklands Neighbourhood House, which houses our Little Acorn Care Centre on Victor St. As a major employer within the neighbourhood, Oaklands Community Association has approx 14 full time employees and 57 part-time as well as a number of contract instructors and over 100 volunteers. 250-370-9101 to register for programs

Community Services Used Battery and Recycling Program You can now recycle your used batteries and cell phones at Oaklands Community Centre (OCC). 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.
