On January 1, 2019, two areas of land from Leduc County and the Town of Beaumont became part of Edmonton. Residents of those areas are now Edmontonians.
Getting Ready for Growth
From 2012 to 2014, Edmonton grew by 7.4% or more than 60,000 people.
To ensure that we have enough land to accommodate growth, the City of Edmonton annexed land south of the boundary.
The annexed area includes 8,260 hectares agreed upon by Leduc County, and 7 hectares for part of the road right of way for 50 Street that was uncontested from the Town of Beaumont.
Several open houses were held throughout the process. View Display Boards from the most recent public engagement session.
See Leduc County and Beaumont - Public Engagement for more public engagement history.
The Municipal Government Board held hearings on the application and made a recommendation to the Province. The Province made a decision to approve the annexation on November 27, 2018. The annexation took effect January 1, 2019.
