Characteristics of Region:

La Crete is located in Northern Alberta - within the Mackenzie County – seven hours north of Edmonton via Hwy 88. The population in town is approximately 3500, and approximately 9000 including surrounding farming community. La Crete is predominately a Mennonite community. The main industries are farming, logging, and saw mills. The official language is English, but the locals speak a German dialect called “Plautdietsch. The town has all the necessary businesses to be self-sufficient, but lacks a hospital. The nearest hospital is a half hour drive north to Fort Vermilion. We do have a medical clinic with ambulatory care. We have an arena for hockey, bowling, and curling. There are three beautiful parks in town, walking trails, six campgrounds, several lakes, a nine-hole golf course, and a beach when the river is low. There are several community events each year: a Heritage Jamboree, a “Celebrate Canada” event, a Mud Bog, pro-rodeo, Fall Fair, RC Airplane Fun Fly, hockey and golf tournaments, and a Pioneer Day at the museum. We have six public schools, several private schools, and a Northern Lakes College to meet our educational needs. There are also many churches in the area. There are two museums in the Mackenzie County – The La Crete Mennonite Heritage Village and the Fort Vermilion Heritage Centre.
