Town of Swan Hills

The Town of Swan Hills was incorporated in 1967 as Canada’s first Centennial Municipality, approximately 10 years after oil deposits were first discovered in the region. Businesses in the town site serve the area’s strong, resource-based economy, and residents enjoy a variety of outdoor pursuits that make Swan Hills “Alberta’s Wilderness Playground”.

“At a 4000 foot elevation, Swan Hills is the highest Canadian municipality east of the Rockies, and is situated in a naturally rich recreational playground. The town overlooks pristine forest, and has numerous lakes – even a few ecological reserves – in its “backyard”. Not content as just the ATV Capital of Alberta, Swan Hills has a variety of other outdoor recreation opportunities and excellent indoor sporting facilities.”
