We moved to Calmar to be a lot closer to work and our kids. Our younger son was hit by a deer twice in a month going to work travelling on HWY 616 towards Thorsby totaling 2 vehicles. All of us have hit deer through the years, time to get closer. Also the house prices are cheaper and it's a nice and quiet little town. We love it here and love the location. Very cute little town.

We've always loved being in the country and small towns. We seemed to be drawn to Calmar because we got more house for our budget and the location is great - not too far from the airport and not too far from Devon, Leduc, Nisku & Edmonton. We love it here and look forward to participating in the community events. Calmar is truly special because of all the towns and provinces we've lived in, no one has ever come to welcome us personally and with a gift bag.

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.
