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.

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.
