Lethbridge is the city with a small town feel and big city amenities, just over two hours southeast of Calgary. Here in this city lies immense history, culture, and green spaces. With the Oldman River winding through Lethbridge and networks of urban parks along the banks, it supports the iconic reputation that Lethbridge holds with their longest and tallest railway bridge in the world. This bridge is an impressive feat of engineering in 1909. Alongside that, another incredible engineering masterpiece is the University of Lethbridge. The great Hall that makes up the original section of the university is the second longest hallway in North America, which measures 800ft (240 m) in length.
Lethbridge knows best about community and social development. The Community and Social Development (CSD) Group is part of the Community Services Department in the city. They decide how to work in the community by assessing the community’s strengths and social needs. Whether is comes to family support services, homelessness initiatives, or pets and nature preservation services, Lethbridge understands the importance of social needs. (Photo: Workabove)
