The County’s Community Services department provides a spectrum of customized services designed to enhance the capacity of community leaders, organizations, and individual residents to achieve their goals, address community issues and make a positive contribution to the region. Community Services provides quality programs and services through collaborative partnerships and strategic alliances with community groups, non-profit organizations and residents.

Making a Positive Contribution to the Lac Ste. Anne Region

The department builds capacity within the community to improve the quality of life of all citizens, and strives to build a future full of opportunities for all.

This Department is responsible for the development of all regional community parks, recreation and cultural facilities, but also has the honour of working with diverse community groups, individuals and government agencies to ensure that there is always something fun and exciting happening in this unique part of Alberta.
