Village of Alliance

Near the Battle River,  just off Highway 36 between Highway 12 and Highway 13,  the longest straight section of railway in Western Canada begins at Alliance - Battle River Railway - a historical rail company that features a tourism train, and freight transport.

This is a spirited community where neighbours and friends are like family. You'll always be greeted with a smile and a cheerful hello. A walking trail surrounds the village and our tree-lined streets are cozy and inviting. In the spring and summer, Alliance bursts with blossoms, while the fall brings a riot of colors. The nearby river valley is breathtaking all year round.

Farming, ranching, oil and gas activity  help make up the economic base - as do the twenty-nine local businesses and the many home-based activities.

Please feel free to contact us for more information.

Terry Fox Run 35 Years Running
Will Your Community Join Us?
For immediate release
May 12, 2015
In this fast-paced world driven by social media and 24-hour news cycles, how many of us can remember what happened last week, much less 35 years ago? Yet if you ask millions of Canadians what they recall from 1980 they have one reply: Terry Fox and the Marathon of Hope.
In the early days of his run in 1980, Terry was an unknown runner on a lonely road. It was in the face of this kind of adversity that Terry formed his indomitable spirit. Every one of the more than 800 Terry Fox Runs in Canada reflects that same spirit, immersed with a sense of hope that inspires and motivates every participant.
Hundreds of thousands of people across Canada are expected to participate in the 35th Annual Terry Fox Run on Sunday, September 20th, marking a milestone anniversary year for the Foundation that bears Terry’s name. The Run, an all-inclusive, family-oriented activity, has become a fall tradition in Canada.
The Terry Fox Foundation is hoping to once again add Alliance, who to date has raised almost $45,000 for the Foundation, to our family of caring and passionate Terry Fox Run communities. As a volunteer-driven organization, we seek an enthusiastic individual who possesses exceptional leadership qualities and has the ability to motivate and mobilize a volunteer team. Materials and training will be provided by the Foundation.
What matters most today, what compelled Terry to finish that 26th mile every day, is the knowledge that nothing is tougher to deal with than a diagnosis of cancer. Terry’s legacy continues to positively affect countless people and lead to breakthroughs not imaginable when he set out on his historic Marathon of Hope 35 years ago. If you wish to volunteer with a grassroots organization that changes lives for the better every day, please contact:
