Profile Last Updated: September 08, 2008
Over 7,500 people call this prairie town home. Many residents of this bedroom community work in Calgary, which is about 25 minutes (40 kms) west on the Trans-Canada Highway.
The arrival of the Canadian Pacific Railway (CPR) in 1883 was instrumental in bringing settlers to the area. The CPR had built an irrigation system by 1905 which served to attract more farmers and settlers to the area.
