Shipping Container Survey

In October 2016 Town Council placed an enforcement hiatus on shipping containers in Coaldale. At that time, staff was also directed to undertake research and public engagement to better understand the viewpoints of the community, before any changes to the regulations are made.

Formal engagement is now underway in the form of a brief survey that can be completed online or in paper form. You can find the survey at:


Paper format: Please stop by the Town office to complete a paper version of the survey

There will also be opportunity to discuss shipping containers with Town representatives at the Fall BBQ. If you do want to have a conversation about shipping containers in Coaldale, please stop by the Coaldale Community Centre between 5 and 8 pm on Wednesday, September 13.

If you have any questions or concerns about shipping containers and you cannot attend the Fall BBQ, please do not hesitate to contact Spencer Croil, Director of Planning and Development at or 403-345-1304 to pass on your thoughts.
