We were looking for an opportunity to be in a small town environment, some more land to grow veggies and our animal to have more space. To be involved in a community that supports each other and believes in a sustainable future, has culture, events, market and family owned business. We absolutely love it! Thank you for being so welcoming.

We moved from Quebec to Alberta to be closer to our children and Grandchildren. Our previous residence in Quebec was on a quiet street in a little town that had neighboring farms and farm lands. We enjoyed this life style and wanted to find a town that was much like the one we left. We found that and more in Calmar. The neighbors and Community were very welcoming. We are pleased with our home and Community and look forward to the future. The donuts are very tasty. Thanks Calmar.

I grew up in a rural community (near Winfield / Breton area). I’ve always loved small towns and the sense of a tight knit community. I work in Edmonton, so I wanted something not too far out, but also not too big. I had heard about New Humble re-opening as an Ag Charter School and thought it was a great opportunity for my children. For all of these reasons, along with the friendly people (and of course the donuts at the Calmar Bakery!!) Calmar felt like the right choice. Thank you for the welcome package! What a nice gesture! I know I’ve made the right choice.

She moved to Calmar to be closer to her family and because of the affordable housing.

We moved to Calmar because of the lower cost of housing, location and the Bakery, lol. Calmar has a small town feel but still close to the city.
