Situated in the Central Peace Country of northwestern Alberta, Saddle Hills County is located approximately 500 kilometres north of Edmonton and only 40 kilometres north of Grande Prairie. The County is a medium-sized local government that offers abundant opportunities. Home to a diverse agricultural community, Saddle Hills County also contains rich deposits of natural gas and oil for which Alberta is so well known.
With the beautiful Peace River Valley forming our northern boundary and the Saddle Hills to the south, we offer picturesque landscapes filled with stunning contrasts and abundant wildlife. Elk, moose and deer are just a few of the wild animals that roam our deep river valleys, lush wooded hillsides and rolling plains.

Rural High Speed Internet
Saddle Hills County remains committed to assisting rural residents obtain access to high speed internet. Various options have been explored over the years and a new approach has been adopted by Council. It has never been the County’s intent to become an internet service provider, but to instead help bridge the gap so that existing service providers may offer a reliable, affordable service to the public.
