Our Mandate

The West Lake Community Association (WLCA) was formed to promote interest, engage
and encourage residents and visitors alike to help preserve the well-being and
uniqueness of all the inhabitants of West Lake and the Wetlands and to address key issues that are of importance and concern to residents of West Lake, Sheba’s Island, Wesley Acres and other small communities situated around the shores of West Lake, and act on the issues in a
 ‘unified community voice’.


The Association’s name was amended to West Lake Community Association (WLCA), which is so defined as being more inclusive of the smaller communities around West Lake’s shoreline, and separate from the more densely populated Wellington area.

Please...

Help us keep this special lake community safe and healthy for 
both humans and wildlife…slow down on our roads, and be mindful of the wildlife that may be attempting to safely 
traverse the road or perhaps one of our endangered turtles 
laying her eggs along the side of the road.

Current News

After an ongoing dialogue, which began last year with the Board members of the West Lake Community Association and local Councillors for Bloomfield-Hallowell Brad Nieman and Phil Prinzen, the County's Director of Operations Adam Goheen has approved the installation of 2 Speed Monitoring Signs on County Rd. 12.  These temporary signs will likely be installed around the end of May and remain in place possibly until September or October of 2021.

Special Park Passes for Sandbanks Provincial Park!  Get your FREE Day Pass at the entrance to the Park.  This Pass is good on a weekday (Monday to Thursday), but you must check-in at the Park entrance each time you visit (even if you have a Season Pass).  This is one of the ways the Park staff will be trying to track the volume of visitors to the Park this year.  Also, the 2021 Season Park Pass is only $75.00 ($84.75 with tax), and is valid through 2022! 

The Butterflyway Project aims to help people step up efforts to help pollinators find food and shelter. Find more info on the Stewardship page.
