We spent the past 3 years living in NE Edmonton – and hated it! Small yards, miles and miles of repetitive, big box stores. Neighbors didn’t or wouldn’t talk to us and would cross the street when they saw we were walking the dog. Honestly, it was very lonely. On our 2nd day here the owners of Fas Gas knew our first names. Our neighbors had a COVID-19 properly spaced driveway beer. People say “Hi” when we’re out and people/children run TO not from the dog. We didn’t move to Calmar – We moved Home.

Yesterday morning my 3 friends and I drove from St. Albert to Calmar primarily to check out the Antique shops. On arrival we located the Bakery and snacked, then found the 3 antique shops, then for lunch, VERSUS was suggested. We so enjoyed our day in Calmar – pleasantly surprised by the inventory in the shops and the quality of food at Versus & Bakery. Everyone was so friendly and inviting, admired the abundance of flowers. Kudos to the Chamber of Commerce and the citizens of Calmar for making our day trip so memorable.

We moved to Calmar because of the small town environment but still close to the City of Leduc. We have participated in ball tournaments here and fell in love! I love the Co-op, I love main street and how many parks we have! I really appreciate being part of this Town and I cannot wait to participate in the Community more!

We chose Calmar because we both grew up in small Communities and the closeness and support is something we knew we wanted to grow a Family. We also love the proximity to the City and Airport. Calmar is great for Community and Convenience.

My Wife and I decided that we wanted to leave the “Hustle and Bustle” of Edmonton. We were looking for a small quiet Town that would allow us to still have access to the City. Calmar is the perfect place for us. It’s quiet, friendly and is close enough to Leduc/Edmonton for work. It was really nice to be welcomed to Calmar with a gift bag shortly after moving in. We are very happy to be living in Calmar.
