Why do we love Fort Macleod?
Could it be the rolling prairies that surrender to the foothills and majestic Rocky Mountains? Is it the history of being the first NWMP settlement in western Canada, that gives us stability and pride? Could it be the people that go out of their way to make this little town stretch to accomplish goals that few other communities will even attempt?
Whatever it is, Fort Macleod is a vibrant town that holds the hearts of its residents, and charms those who come to visit. Whether you are looking to set up a new business, or are here to participate in one of our many events, we hope you will enjoy your time here while you explore our community.
