Mayor & Council

Mayors Message

On behalf of Town Council, I would like to extend our warmest greetings to those of you who are visiting us through our website. We hope you like what you see, and if you have any questions, please feel free to contact the Town Office.

We are very proud of our community, and are pleased to preserve our unique country atmosphere, heritage, and quality of life, while cultivating a dynamic and economic environment.

Carstairs provides a fresh alternative to the hustle and bustle of big city life, and we know you will find the quality of life here exactly what you're looking for. Our close proximity to the Calgary International Airport, with easy access on Highway 2 to the business centers of Airdrie and Calgary, also make it extremely convenient for the business commuter.

Carstairs has all the services for convenient daily life, including grocery stores, a pharmacy, restaurants, banks, beauty salons, service stations, medical and professional services. The town has plenty of open space, parks, walking trails, and safe neighborhoods.

For those of you who may be thinking of making Carstairs your home ... Welcome! For those who have already chosen our community as the best place to be, "See you at the coffee shop!"
