Chestermere Information 

a summary by Kevin Baldwin Chestermere Realtor

Chestermere Real Estate

            Chestermere is a city in the Canadian province of Alberta in the Rocky View County. The original name of Chestermere was Chestermere Lake. Chestermere is a member municipality of the Calgary Regional Partnership.


The population of Chestermere has seen a steady rise in the last many decades and more. As the number of residents in Chestermere has been rising, Chestermere real estate demand and Chestermere new homes for sale have also seen an upward movement in numbers.


Population of Chestermere

            The city of Chestermere has a population close to 20,000 people who live in a little over 6,000 private dwelling units. The Summer Village of Chestermere Lake officially changed its name and status on March 1, 1993 to the Town of Chestermere. Getting the status of a town gave more local and political authority to the residents. Amenities and services for the residents were continuously expanded by the town.


The population also continued to increase all through. Chestermere was the fastest growing Town in Alberta. The town council voted in 2014 in favor of pursuing a city status and with effect from January 1, 2015, Chestermere became a city. It was Alberta’s 18th city.


History of early settlement

            The area around today’s Chestermere was inhabited by only a few farmers prior to the 20th century. The Canadian Pacific Railway was set up in the 1880s. That saw a large number of people getting settled in the west. The settlers then wanted to make farming more productive. They began to look for ways to better irrigate their land.


Chestermere was a natural wetland. It was found to be a perfect source for irrigating the Western Irrigation Block. A dam and canal system was, accordingly, built by the year 1907. The wetland was developed into a lake and the farmers started using the water for irrigation purposes. Then came further rapid developments, which we shall cover below.


Summer village

            With developments on the irrigation front, people started using the lake for recreational purposes as well. They built cabins and started living at the lake in the summer months. They worked towards community development, provision of electricity and natural gas for the cabins and for controlling the pollution levels in the lake.


By 1977, the lake had 120 permanent homes and was given the official status as the Summer Village of Chestermere Lake on April 1, 1977. With this, further services, amenities, improved roads, street lights, community hall and golf course etc. got added here.



            On March 1, 1993, the Summer Village of Chestermere Lake got transformed to the Town of Chestermere. More facilities got added and it became Chestermere City with effect from January 1, 2015.


Geographical neighborhoods

            Chestermere city is organized into fifteen neighborhoods with maximum being in the Southeast and Southwest, with Northwest and Northeast following in that order.

About Chestermere    


About Chestermere

The Town of Chestermere's beginning was in approximately 1884 when men of vision recognized the value of the body of water as a source for an irrigation system. These early pioneers had visions of what irrigation would mean to the lives of the people. The building of the headwork’s of an irrigation water supply was the birth of Chestermere Lake.

Chestermere was incorporated as a town on March 1, 1993. The Town has grown very quickly and registered a population of 15,352 in 2012. Chestermere's attractions include a 750 acre lake and 18 hole golf course as well as a number of recreational opportunities. These are matched only by the prairie sunrises and sunsets.

It is also served by the 1A Highway, locally known as 17th Avenue SE, which enables one to arrive in downtown Calgary within 20 minutes from Chestermere.

Prior to the 20th century, the area around what is now Chestermere Lake was settled by only a few farmers. When the Canadian Pacific Railway was established in the 1880s, more and more people came to settle in the west. To make farming more productive, settlers began to determine ways to irrigate their land.
As a natural wetland, Chestermere Lake was considered to be perfect for use as a balancing pool for the Western Irrigation Block.[6] By 1907, a dam and canal system had been built, the wetland developed into a lake, and farmers began using the water for irrigation.
Summer Village
Following the irrigation development, the lake began to be used for recreation. People would lease land from the Western Irrigation District (WID) (which took control of the land from CPR in 1944),[7] build cabins and stay on the lake during the summer months.
In 1959, the Chestermere Cabin Owners Association (CCOA) was incorporated with approximately 50 members.[8] The CCOA held events, bought a fire truck for the community, worked to reduce pollution in the lake, planted trees, and arranged for electricity and natural gas for the cabins. As more people began to live around Chestermere Lake, residents wanted to secure long-term leases.
In 1975, the CCOA bought the land from the WID and then transferred it to the residents. By 1977, the lake boasted 120 permanent homes[citation needed] and gained official status as the Summer Village of Chestermere Lake on April 1, 1977.[9][10]
As a summer village, the residents of Chestermere gained more political influence and were able to begin adding services and amenities or encouraging infrastructure and developments such as fire and protection services, improved roads, a community hall, street lights, a recreation centre, local businesses and a golf course.
By 1992, Chestermere’s population had increased to 1,043 permanent residents. On March 1, 1993, the Summer Village of Chestermere Lake officially changed its status and name to the Town of Chestermere.[11] Becoming a town gave the residents more local and political authority.
The town continued developing amenities and services for residents and its population has grown to 17,203 residents as recorded by its 2014 municipal census.[4] In late 2014, town council voted in favour of pursuing city status, which became effective January 1, 2015.[12]


Chestermere's town council voted to apply for city status on September 29, 2014. It became Alberta's 18th city on January 1, 2015.[12]
