Where There’s Room to Grow

VISITING WHEATLAND COUNTY

Community Profile

Wheatland County has a population of 8,285 residents. The County is bordered on the west by the Rocky View County, the south by Vulcan County and Siksika Nation, the east by the County of Newell and Special Areas 2, and on the north by Kneehill County and the town of Drumheller. The prairie's natural beauty fills the eye in all part of Wheatland County. From the golden fields near Standard to the badlands of the northeast, to the tranquility of the Bow River near Carseland. Wheatland County is an ideal blend of rural and urban lifestyles, we are next door to the city of Calgary, the fastest growing city in the most vibrant province of Canada.

Our proud heritage of independence and hard work shows in our farms and ranches - and our pride in the past is still evident in community rodeos and fairs each summer and fall. Our work ethic and dedicated stewardship of the land, once primarily agricultural, is now our strengths we look forward to the future. Continuing growth and development in agribusiness, oil and gas and manufacturing will add a vibrant entrepreneurial outlook.
