Clearwater County and the Village of Caroline have started the process to explore the possibility of amalgamating the two municipalities. This page is dedicated to providing updates on the project as information becomes available.

High Level Project Timeline

Project Background

In January 2020, the Village of Caroline Council indicated a desire to enter negotiations for Amalgamating with Clearwater County. 

Subsequently, Clearwater County, in partnership with the Village of Caroline, applied for an Alberta Community Partnership (ACP) – Municipal Restructuring Study Stream Grant. 

As of June 28, 2022, both Village and County Councils authorized the Clearwater – Village Intermunicipal Collaboration Committee to undertake and oversee the amalgamation study project.

Frequently Asked Questions

It is important to note that no final decision has been made about amalgamation by either Village Council or Clearwater County Council yet. The decision must be made by both the County and the Village, and then a request will be sent to the Province of Alberta.
