We acknowledge that we are on Treaty 6 territory, a traditional meeting grounds, gathering place, and travelling route to the Cree, Saulteaux (So-toe), Blackfoot, Métis, Dene (De-nay) and Nakota Sioux (Sue). We respect the histories, languages, and cultures of First Nations, Metis, and Inuit, whose presence and traditions continue to enrich our vibrant community. We acknowledge all the many First Nations, Métis, and Inuit whose footsteps have marked these lands for centuries and we stand in solidarity with those who seek the truth and reconciliation.
Welcome to Blackfalds!
The Town of Blackfalds is a great place to live and is one of Canada's fastest-growing communities - with 11,015 residents as of 2021 (See complete census results here).
People make Blackfalds home because of its opportunities and quality of life while maintaining a rural-feeling lifestyle, recreational amenities, affordable housing, and its ideal location central to major centres, as attracting features.
Great things are happening in Blackfalds; community members enjoy the benefits of high-quality services, improved waste management and snow removal programs, on-demand transit, park and trail development, fibre-optic telecommunication, the Abbey Centre - a centrepiece for community gathering, recreation and leisure activities. In the fall of 2021, the new Eagle Builders Centre Arena will be open to the public and will offer the community another hub for recreation and, with a new attached public library, a place for Arts & Culture.
Improved transportation and education options from K-12 with two new additional schools (including a new high school) contribute to a bright future for Blackfalds.
