ABOUT THE COUNTY
The County of St. Paul is a people-focused, close-knit region with a population of just over 6400, a community of 1200 farms, 32 oil & gas companies and is located 208km northeast of Edmonton.
The Town of St. Paul, Town of Elk Point and Summer Village of Horseshoe Bay lie within the County boundaries but have their own governance. Hamlets within the County include Ashmont, Heinsburg, Mallaig, Lafond, Lindbergh, Lottie Lake, St. Edouard, St. Lina, and St. Vincent.
We're a community that shares in your values. We work to live our core values in everything we do: we’ll be honest and transparent (even when it’s tough), we’ll be fair, we’ll share in and work towards success, we’ll be welcoming, and when it comes down to it we care. We’re not the city, we’re the un-city.
