Notice of Intention to Expropriate

STARS Air Ambulance

We've added some information on STARS Air Ambulance's Emergency Link Centre here.

STARS provides a site registration service that allows people working and living in remote areas to register their properties with the Emergency Link Centre free of charge.

In the event of an emergency, the site registration system ensures that STARS has your exact property location for an even quicker and more precise response.


Fire Permits

Cardston County residents wishing to conduct an open fire must acquire a fire permit before proceeding with the burn. You can contact our shop at (403) 653-3712 between hours of 8:00am to 5:00pm to obtain a fire permit.


Striking Balance Documentary

You should definitely check out the upcoming Striking Balance documentary feature on the Waterton Biosphere Reserve. Striking Balance is an eight-part documentary series featuring Canada's 18 Biosphere Reserves.

The Waterton Biosphere Reserve encompasses some of the most spectacular and ecologically diverse landscapes in the Canadian Rockies and prairie grasslands.


Reeve and Deputy Reeve

During our annual Organizational Meeting on October 12th, 2016, Council voted to appoint Councillor Jim Bester as the County's Reeve and Councillor Fred Lacey as the Deputy Reeve.

We'd like to thank Fred Lacey for his tenure as Reeve and welcome Jim Bester as the new Reeve for the upcoming year.
