We moved to Calmar to be close to the city but not in it 12 yrs ago. The town was exceptionally friendly. We only stayed 2 yrs then moved to a farm. 10 yrs later here we are back in our small town Calmar ready to settle for good. It has just the right amount of amenities to satisfy us and still maintain the small town feel. Our daughter and grandchildren live right around the corner and it’s great to be close together again.

We moved here to start our lives together, recently married after a long-distance relationship. We find this community kind, friendly and helpful.

We recently retired and wanted to move to a small town near our friends and family near Edmonton.  We looked at several towns in the area and both agreed that Calmar offered us what we were looking for.   Not too big not too small, sufficient amenitites to handle everyday needs, reasonable home prices, etc..  It is close to a metropolitan city (Edm.) but far enough away that it doesn't have the crazy traffic, etc, that a big city has.  It is close to our children and family and friends.

My husband just got a job in Nisku and we found a lovely duplex with affordable rent in Calmar.  My sister lives in Beaumont so it's not too far from family.

We sold our home in Calmar Mobile Home Park.  We wanted to stay in Calmar because of not being to close to the city of Edmonton or the high price of homes.  I work out of Leduc with an oil rig moving company for the past 20 years.  My Wife and I enjoy the quiet surroundings in Calmar.  Thank you for the gift bag.
