Community Profile

The Town of Coaldale is an emerging community located in the heart of southern Alberta. With a variety of recreational facilities and a diversity of amenities and tourist attractions, our municipality combines the benefits of small town living with the service provision of larger urban centres. Our mission is to ensure that Coaldale continues to be a preferred place to live, work and play. Whether you’re a developer or business owner seeking the “Coaldale Advantage,” a prospective home buyer looking for a friendly neighbourhood, or a couple looking to retire, our community has something for everyone. If you’re new to Town, or simply visiting for the weekend, we encourage you to stay a little longer.


The size and scope of new residential developments speak to the appeal of becoming a resident, and our dynamic volunteer base and annual event calendar showcase the vibrant spirit of our residents. Coaldale is an innovative community which meshes sustainable practices into its high quality of life. Our curbside solid waste program for composting, garbage and recycling, for example, combines the benefits of environmental stewardship and convenience, while our Community Gardens brings a taste of small-town living to your backyard. There are excellent schools for all ages, as well as a social resource and support centres for teenagers, seniors and families. And one of the best parts of all—most businesses and recreational facilities are within walking and biking distance.


While residential subdivisions are booming, Council has invested 5 million dollars into its Northeast Industrial Park, selling lots, and attracting new businesses, along the way. With affordable industrial land, a competitive commercial mill rate, and attractive business incentive packages, Coaldale has become a premier destination for commercial growth, business relocation and development. Throughout town, there are numerous businesses that cover a wide range of services and employment opportunities, including restaurants, banks, gas stations, trades, manufacturing, flowers and giftware, professional services and more.


If you’re looking for fun-filled activities, the Alberta Birds of Prey Centre and the Gem of the West Museum are must-see attractions; and Land-O-Lakes Golf and Country Club is a premier golfing destination. Our spray park and outdoor wading pool have become an ideal hotspot for children and young families, while our refurbished outdoor swimming pool provides an excellent locale for more advanced fitness, lessons and fun. To cap it off, we have a fully functional library and senior’s centre, a newly renovated curling facility and skating arena, as well as many parks and playgrounds. Don’t forget to check out “Rotary Park,” our state-of-the-art sportsfield complex at the Quads.

Coaldale is truly becoming a recreational and commercial Hub of Southern Alberta. Indeed, the number of events hosted each year provides an excellent opportunity to showcase our growing municipality.

We think Coaldale is a Wise Choice, and many visitors, business owners and residents know why.
