Leadership at Work

Our Town Council is made up of seven elected officials, including the Mayor, and six Councillors. These elected officials provide the guidance and leadership that makes Claresholm what it is. Town Council meets regularly in the Town Council Chambers on the 2nd and 4th Mondays at 7:00 pm.  The public is welcome to all Council meetings. If Monday is a holiday, the meeting will be on Tuesday. Only one meeting is held in the months of July and August, chosen and announced during the year. There may only be one meeting in December as well.

Message From The Mayor

Mayor Rob Steel

Welcome To The Town Of Claresholm!

Whether you are a long-term resident, just passing through, or thinking about investing in our community, we are thrilled to welcome you to our website.

Claresholm is a strong and vibrant southern Alberta community built on a solid foundation of hard work, family, and community service. Established as a town in 1905, Claresholm started as a siding on the railway and has evolved into the service center for the farming and ranching community in this beautiful part of the province.

Claresholm has also diversified over the years and is proud to be the hub of health care services in the area. We boast a vibrant, growing business community and always welcome new investment. From an active living standpoint, we are fortunate to have a multitude of wonderful facilities and services: hospitals, schools, parks, playgrounds, curling rink, 18-hole golf course, agriplex, daycare, playschool, FCSS, senior’s drop-in center, indoor swimming pool, spray park, campground....the list goes on!

Claresholm truly is “Where Community Takes Root”. If you are looking for a healthy and progressive community to live, work, raise a family, retire or start a business in, we would be happy to welcome you!
