Living in Our Community
Welcome to Our Community!
Saddle Hills County is a rural community situated in the Central Peace Region of northwestern Alberta, along the southern banks of the Peace River and the BC border.
We have a large farming community and offer a variety of Agricultural Services to our producers, including Outreach and Extension Programming, Research Partnerships, Veterinary Medicine Bursaries, Tree Resources, Weed and Pest Control, and much more. Our Agricultural Services Board (ASB) is actively involved in the community, and comprised of local producers and agricultural experts with extensive and invaluable knowledge of the region. All of this is supported by our vast array of Agricultural Societies, helping their communities and the County thrive.
We are also a proud home to many local businesses and industry, both small and large, and offer a variety of free business services, including our online Business Directory and Business Features, as well as links to Local Realtors.
Whether you are new to the County or a lifelong resident, our Community Groups are at the heart of our communities, and will be happy to welcome you into their fold. The County is also home to two Schools, located in Bonanza and Savanna.
Our Emergency and Protective Services Department is compromised of talented and dedicated Volunteer Fire Departments and Medical First Responders, and is responsible for Fire Notices, Emergency Preparedness, Controlled Burns, and Bylaw Enforcement, among other things.
If you are interested in the History of the area, we have features on many locations, including Cemeteries, and Places of Worship within the County, as well as Maps. We also offer current news to our residents, through partnerships with the Central Peace Signal and Town & Country News, and our regularly updated online News and seasonal mail-out Newsletters. Our annual Photo Contests display the incredible talent of the region, and is one of many ways we are able to celebrate our residents.
Saddle Hills is located in the traditional territories of the Indigneous peoples of the Treaty 8 region and the Metis Settlements and the Metis Nation of Alberta, Regions 1, 4, 5 and 6, ancestral territory of the Cree and Dene. We respect the histories, languages and cultures of First Nations, Metis, Inuit, and all First Peoples of Canada, whose presence continues to enrich our community.
