The friendly oasis of the Village of Edgerton is nestled in rolling hills in the east-central Alberta; south east of Edmonton, Alberta on Hwy 14 then south on secondary highway 894. The Border City of Lloydminster lies 85 km north, and the town of Wainwright, 36 km west. We boast many recreational opportunities and have all the necessities within the borders of our town. Our K-12 Public School offers children a high quality education with small class sizes and low student/teacher ratios. CFB Wainwrgiht, supported by the Western Area Training Centre and the Canadian Maneuver Training Centre, is a nice 25 minute drive west for those travelling daily, the sun will always be at your back! Surrounded by rich agricultural land and steadily increasing oil and gas production, Edgerton is a great place to raise a family, a community with good old fashioned hospitality and all the conveniences of small town living.

Growing Our Community

If you were asked what you would identify as the greatest strength Edgerton has, what would be your answer? What would you say our greatest barriers or threats What opportunities in the areas of economic growth, quality of life, infrastructure, health care and educational opportunities can you identify?

In April the Village of Edgerton, with the assistance of the Volunteer Services Branch of Community Development will be hosting community meetings to bring together a wide cross section of residents, business, both storefront and home-based; volunteer organizations; faith communities and others. The intent of the community meetings is to learn from each other what we see for the future of our community. Be watching for date, time and location of the community meetings.
