An Owners Association is an organization created by the developer to own, operate, and maintain certain features within the community that were established by the developer and will not maintained by the municipality in the future. These features may include entrance signage, ornamental parks and ponds, enhanced landscaping maintenance, pathway snow removal, community beautification, pathways, fencing upkeep, and other community areas.
DLOA was established to maintain the value of community amenities and to ensure a high standard of maintenance of common spaces, ensuring that Dawson’s Landing’s many unique attributes and features will be maintained for many years to come.
DLOA is a means of building community pride and unity amongst residents through community beautification, events, and areas. Active involvement in DLOA is an excellent way to meet fellow owners, and an opportunity to help shape the community’s future through planning and input. Organized events will be provided to enhance the sense of community and to encourage neighbourly relations.
The developer will legally establish an Owners Association early in the planning stages of the community.
An Encumbrance is registered on the title of every lot in the community of Dawson’s Landing, making each owner a member of DLOA.
All owners and residents of Dawson’s Landing will enjoy the long-term benefits of enhanced maintenance, which provides a more attractive community. This helps to maintain market values and to preserve the long-term value of each home in Dawson’s Landing, enhancing the overall community experience.
DLOA is owned by all property owners within Dawson’s Landing.
Qualico Communities Calgary (QCC), on behalf of Waterbridge Developments Ltd., will govern, control, and subsidize DLOA until DLOA can be self-sustaining and/or the community is nearing full buildout. At that time, QCC will turn control of DLOA over to the membership. This timeline will be solely at the discretion of DLOA. Ultimately, DLOA will be self-funding and managed by an independent third party.
Yes, like other Owners Associations, DLOA will collect membership fees to operate the Association. Each household contributes to the community through a nominal annual fee. These fees are administered through registered Encumbrances against all land titles in Dawson’s Landing and are mandatory.

Fee notices will be mailed out annually and fees are levied effective January 1 each year.
