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!"

I have been a resident of Carstairs since 1996, and am retired from a 35 year career in the airline industry. Many of the years in Sales, but also in the customer service area.
I have been a councillor for 11 years now, having served 2004-2007, 2007-2010,  2013-2017 and now 1 year in the 2017-2021 term. The 2010-2013 term was a time off for me to do some travelling with my wife of 50 years.
Currently in this term on town council, I sit on 2 committees, one being the strategic Planning Committee and the other is the Legislative and Emergency Services Committee. I am also the town representative to the Mountain View Regional Waste Services Commission, as well as the town representative to the Parkland Regional Library Board.  At PRL, I sit on the executive board as well. In addition, I also sit on the Alberta Library Trustee’s Association provincial board.
I have been an active member of the community since moving here, a past member of the Carstairs Lions, the Carstairs Curling Club amongst other organizations. I stay active today in the Carstairs Historical society, our local United Church, and am the President of the Friends of Alberta Junior Hockey Society.
