Map of Whitecourt

Welcome to Whitecourt!

The town of Whitecourt is located approximately 175 km (109 mi) north of Edmonton, on the way to Grande Prairie via highway 43. Whitecourt is primarily an industrial town, offering rich agricultural, oil and forestry reserves, which have been tapped into by the town's three pulp, paper and sawmills. Known widely as the snowmobile capital of Alberta, Whitecourt offers access to several hundred kilometres of exciting winter trails, both for motorized winter sports and non-motorized ones, such as cross-country skiing. During the summer months, residents and visitors of this town also pass time on trails, this time as hikers or ATVers. Fishing is another popular sport, on either of the town's two rivers, the Athabasca and Macleod, or on one of the many surrounding lakes. Or see the trees—Whitecourt Trees of Canada Plantation showcases native trees from every province in Canada along the highway in Whitecourt. Visitors to this town can take in a number of events such as rodeos and riverboat races in the summer.
