Vision and Mandate

The Oil Sands Community Alliance (OSCA) builds shared value and healthy communities to enable the sustainable development of Canada’s oil sands and the region where we operate.   

Our name emphasizes a broader interest and a longer-term approach to thinking about socio-economic impacts on the community.

Through our association, resource developers partner with local, provincial or federal governments and agencies, communities, and other industries to address mutual issues. We know that partnerships are the best way to facilitate local capacity building, mobilize resources more quickly, leverage investment and coordinate multiple activities to respond to complex issues.

Our mission is to pursue innovative solutions, build relationships and collaborate to improve economic benefits for oil sands and the social wellbeing of the communities using our strategic approach.
