Description

Municipal Districts and Counties of Alberta shows the location of the rural, urban and specialized municipalities in Alberta as of 2003.

Data Sources

The Municipal Boundary File containing the digital map information was obtained from AltaLIS Ltd. This file contains provincial coverage of municipal boundary linework, featuring rural municipalities, cities, towns, villages, summer villages and hamlets at an accuracy of ± 3 metres. Only the cities and main towns were displayed in the final map along with the main rivers and lakes.

Potential Uses

This map is useful to identify municipality location and where a municipality is located in relation to neighboring municipalities. Once the municipal jurisdiction is verified, accessibility to area-specific programs can be determined.

Limitations

The names and boundaries of municipalities may change from year to year. Up-to-date information can be obtained by contacting Alberta Municipal Affairs (website below).

Further Information

Additional information about individual municipalities can be obtained from the municipalities themselves.
