Wainwright is a unique town that offers all the amenities of an urban centre, combined with the comfortable characteristics of a rural community.

We have been rated the most affordable community in the last 2 Alberta-wide surveys comparing 35 communities (2016 & 2018 Alberta Spatial Price Survey).

Our older district is lined with mature elm trees and character homes that exude character, charm and elegance that make you feel comfortable the very first time you see them.

Our new and steadily expanding section of real estate in Wainwright has the look and feel of a modern urban centre that would appeal to the most modern taste.

Wherever you live, you will be conveniently close to inviting parks, newly developed playgrounds, schools, and expanding business districts.

  • Peace Memorial Multiplex (with twin hockey rinks)
