Rural Addressing

Saddle Hills County has implemented rural addressing. Rural addressing is a standardized system which assigns an address to rural properties throughout a municipality to allow them to quickly and easily be identified by emergency response agencies (9-1-1: ambulance, police, fire), service providers, residents and non-residents.


  • Is the Rural Address the same as a mailing address?

No. Your current Canada Post address has not changed. Please note however, in many municipalities Canada Post has implemented rural addressing as the mailing address (with exceptions in some circumstances), and this may occur in Saddle Hills County at some point in the future.

  • How do I get a Rural Address?

If you do not have a rural address assigned to your residence or to your business, please contact the Planning & Information Systems Department.

  • I have more than one residence on my parcel. Should I have more than one rural address?

Yes. Each dwelling should have their own rural address. A business that is not situated in a residential yard site, that has occupied buildings, will also have a rural address.
