About Peace River


The town of Peace River, sheltered withen the majestic valley of the Peace where three rivers join to create one of the most beautiful settings in Alberta; colourful, and awe-inspiring. A local First Nation legend says, "Drink the water of the Peace River and you will return," a legend which proves itself again and again.

Peace River's strategic location, size, and servicing capacity help make the town an important centre of services for Northwestern Alberta. This area population of about 23,000 includes Peace River, Grimshaw, Manning, Berwyn, Nampa, Falher, St. Isidore and Jean Cote.
