Seniors Home Supports Program

The Edmonton Seniors Home Supports Program is a referral service that gives seniors referrals to vetted service providers who offer snow removal, yard help, housekeeping and minor home repair services.


The Seniors Home Supports Program divides Edmonton into six districts. A seniors organization in each district acts as a community hub to coordinate the program in that area. For a list of organizations and more program information visit: http://www.seniorshomesupports.com/

Help stop crime in McQueen!

  • Neighbours and community are the best defence against crime! Look out for one another. If you see anything suspicious, do not hesitate to call it in! 9-1-1 if you require immediate assistance, 780-423-4567 or #377 for non-immediate assistance.
  • Although our crime statistics (below) show that crime is down in the community, it could be that many crimes go without being reported. Police presence is directly related to crimes reported so it of utmost importance to REPORT EVERY CRIME, NO MATTER HOW SMALL. 
  • Record serial numbers of anything valuable that you'd like returned if it happens to be stolen. Etch phone numbers in your valuable items like tools. Pawn shops will call you if it turns up!
  • Research CPTED (Crime Prevention Through Environmental Design), & popcenter.org to reduce the risk of crime happening on your property. 
  • Police arrested and charged an individual with dozens of break and enters. It is known that this suspect was involved with break & enters in our neighbourhood, mainly through basement windows. Due to the large number and severity of the charges, the suspect will be in jail for a long length of time.
  • Print off the neighbourhood watch sign (also below) and put it in your window. Again, do not hesitate to call immediately if you see ANY SUSPICIOUS behaviour.
  • Do NOT keep valuables and/or identification in your vehicle.

 Yard "Greening" Tips


The Good Growing Neighbours program promotes pesticide and fertilizer alternative methods for maintaining a healthy lawn. 

Here we offer ten helpful hints for "Greening" up your yard.

Want to Build a Rain Garden?


You can help keep our city green by participating in the City of Edmonton’s Rain Garden in a Box project.

A rain garden is a landscaped area that collects, absorbs, and filters stormwater runoff from rooftops, driveways, patios, and other hard surfaces that don’t allow water to soak in.

Noxious Weeds


Not all flowers are friendly.

The City of Edmonton is on the hunt for noxious weeds on public and private property. These plants can:

  • Grow and spread quickly, invading crops and entire ecosystems
  • Out compete our native plants
  • Infest streams, riverbanks and waterways
  • Reduce native biodiversity

Visit the City's Weed website to see how you can help pursue, capture and destroy these public enemies.

On-street parking complaints now go to the City of Edmonton’s 311 Contact Centre instead of the Edmonton Police Service (EPS) non-emergency line. Read more...
