Wheatland County has a population of over 8000 residents. The County is bordered on the west by the M.D. of Rocky View, the south by Vulcan County, the east by 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 parts 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 residents have enjoyed working here and raising families for generations in a variety of settings. Wheatland County is an ideal blend of rural and urban lifestyles – we are right next door to 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 strength as we look forward to the future. Continuing growth and development in agribusiness, oil and gas, and manufacturing will add a vibrant entrepreneurial outlook.
