The hamlet of St-Isidore, Alberta was established in 1953 by ten families from the Saguenay-Lac-Saint-Jean region of Quebec. St. Isidore was the last community founded in Alberta in the wave of migration from Quebec after World War II. These pioneers worked hard to develop farmland and a vibrant francophone community. Today, the community is still vibrant and reflects the family and cooperative spirit on which it was founded.
St-Isidore and its surroundings offer visitors and residents a wide range of cultural, sporting, family and informational activities. People can attend music and dance performances, outdoor activities, exhibitions and much more. You have to come to the region to really appreciate all that it has to offer.
