Welcome to Greeniew, the third-largest rural municipality in the province of Alberta, a municipality where landscape, services and the room to stretch combine to provide citizens and visitors with a wide range of business, cultural and recreational activities. From Meadows to Mountains describes our Greenview landscape, but it’s our people that make the difference. Whether you’re here for the night or a lifetime, you’ll find us friendly, hard-working and resourceful.
The Municipal District includes the hamlets of Little Smoky, Ridgevalley, DeBolt, Landry Heights, Grande Cache and Grovedale. Our borders encompass the Sturgeon Lake Cree Nation and the towns of Fox Creek, and Valleyview, while Grande Prairie is our neighbour to the west. Serviced by Highways 40, 43 and 49, railways and a major airport in Grande Prairie, transportation is convenient and efficient.
Agriculture, forestry, oil and gas, coal and tourism are all mainstays of both the local and provincial economies. Approximately one-quarter of the land within Greenview is suitable for agricultural development, with other natural resource development primarily in the foothills and green areas in the south and west of the M.D. Recreation and cultural facilities abound, with a variety of museums, arenas, golf courses, parks and community halls.
