By-Laws & Objects
The by-laws and objects of the West Springs/Cougar Ridge Community Association were officially approved during a Special General Meeting held on March 29, 2011.
These documents were subsequently submitted for approval and registration to Alberta's Corporate Registry, in compliance with the Societies Act. We are pleased to inform you that the new by-laws and objects have been granted approval by the Registrar of Corporations and are now in effect.
For further information or any inquiries, please feel free to contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.

The West Springs/Cougar Ridge Community Association has established the following objects:
- a) To provide a platform that fosters a unified and respected voice, representing the community as a whole.
- b) To engage in negotiations with third parties on behalf of the entire community.
- c) To actively promote and facilitate a wide range of recreational, social, and sport activities for the residents of our community.
- d) To acquire, lease, or hold lands, buildings, or any related interests for the purpose of effectively achieving the Association's objects.
- e) To serve as a proactive advocate and champion for the collective interests of the entire community, adapting and promoting suitable initiatives as needed.
We are committed to upholding these by-laws and objects to ensure the welfare and prosperity of our community.
The Paskapoo Slopes, an integral part of the West Springs and Cougar Ridge Communities, is a unique area with significant ecological and historical resources. A base line archaeological inventory and assessment was carried out in May and June 1997 of Precontact Native Archaeological Sites in the East Paskapoo Slopes and adjacent areas.
In total, there are now 49 significant sites identified, including a number of campsites, kill sites, sweat pits and others. Bison were not only driven into corrals along the uppermost slopes below the escarpment; they were also driven and trapped at lower levels along the slopes. The result is a series of kill/processing camps extending down the slopes. Similar complexities in moving herds to specific sites have been documented at Head-Smashed-In Buffalo Jump west of Ft. Macleod.
The pattern is similar in kind and intensity to that found associated with large bison kills/processing camps along the Porcupine Hills. The main differences observed at the Paskapoo Slopes is primarily that the bison driving and processing is spread out laterally and vertically along the slopes and, although intensive, it is spread over 2 km of slope. Stacked together, the layers of artifacts would no doubt represent the intensity found in the deep bone beds and campsites deposits at jumps and camps such as that of Old Woman’s Buffalo Jump.
During the fall of 2000, an extensive archaeological study was performed on the significant sites located along the storm and sanitary utility corridor for the Cougar Ridge Community. This trunk now runs down the Paskapoo Slopes. Before it was installed, these digs were completed.
