Rural refresh: Small-town life in Beiseker and Irricana is bigger and better than ever

If you're a city dweller who has dismissed the small-town lifestyle due to outdated ideas about commute times and amenities, it might be time for a second look at life in Beiseker and Irricana. Recent years have seen progressive changes to these small towns' populations, services and accessibility.

Memory Lane

Lined with charming, independent businesses and loads of historic treasures, small towns are trying to revitalize their main streets


Kelly Warrack describes the movement of businesses out of Strathmore's downtown core to the edge of town as "a fairly typical story for towns like us."


Warrack, who grew up on a farm near Strathmore, says Strathmore's Second Avenue (Main Street) was always the focal point of the town in decades past. "Main Street was the place to go," recalled Warrack, citing the presence of the feed mill, banks, the hardware store, the local Co-op and the King Edward Hotel as among the street's popular destinations. In recent times, however, Warrack says businesses have moved from downtown and have opened along the highway.

Welcome to Irricana and Beiseker

Pioneer and farming roots hold strong in town and village to the northeast

Located just 35-minutes northeast of Calgary in the heart of Alberta's farmland sits Irricana, a town known for its laid-back atmosphere and sense of community spirit.

The town hosts several functions throughout the year, notably the Pioneer Acres Annual Show Aug. 7 – 9. This year's show will feature an antique car and truck parade, Pioneer World Exhibits and farming demonstrations that harken back to the days of the early settlers.

No place like home

Surrounding communities hold their value

The appeal to small-town living just a stone's throw from the "big" city is nothing new. Yet recent housing market intelligence suggests it's more than just lifestyle preferences driving homeowners beyond Calgary's borders.

While slower economic activity has influenced housing markets across the province, CREB®'s latest Surrounding Area Quarterly report found prices in areas surrounding Calgary have remained fairly stable.
