Cold Lake is a city located in northeastern Alberta, named after the lake it borders. The name shouldn’t fool you, because this area is filled with warm people, sparkling clear water, and a breathtaking experience of natural beauty. The common industry is oil & gas, which makes it a prospering city. Cold Lake was first recorded on a map in 1970, by the name of Coldwater Lake. Cold Lake was formed when it merged three towns previously known as Grand Centre, Town of Cold Lake, and Medley. In 1996, Grand Centre was renamed as Cold Lake South and the original Cold Lake is known as Cold Lake North. The city is situated in Alberta’s Lakeland district, 300 km northeast of Edmonton.
The city is near the Alberta-Saskatchewan provincial border and the area surrounding the city consists of primarily farmland. The city’s economy is heavily dependent on the spending at CFB Cold Lake alongside supporting oil & gas, and local production. This community is a top choice for many workers in the oil patch nearby and is home of one of the busiest fighter bases, a 4-wing star. (Photo: Coldlake.com)
