Community Well-Being

By working with community leaders we gain a better understanding of short and long-term social and economic impacts at all levels.

While the issues and opportunities have changed, OSCA has remained committed to a collaborative approach to identify, prioritize and manage the socio-economic impacts of oil sands development. Harnessing collective energy leads to better representation, use of resources and informed choices regarding community well-being.

OSCA works to create solutions to help build thriving communities and create shared value with our neighbours, including the Regional Municipality of Wood Buffalo (RMWB), Lac La Biche and the Municipal District of Opportunity.


Maintain the social license to operate in surrounding communities while recognizing the responsibility to help promote sustainable development of Alberta’s oil sands.
