The Village of Alberta Beach was incorporated in 1920 and is set on the shores of Lac Ste. Anne approximately 60km West of Edmonton and is primarily used for recreation. Over the years Alberta Beach has become a popular resort to visit which has a combination of permanent and summer residents. Our permanent population taken from the 2016 census is 1018 and on a busy summer weekend can attract 3000 or more visitors. Alberta Beach has a 5-member Council whose term currently runs until 2021.

  • Fires Can Happen - Are You Covered?
    Did you know that the cost of fire suppression by the fire department for a structure fire is payable by the property owner to the fire suppression provider?  Did you know that if a fire department responds to any other sort of fire:  ie)  grass, lawnmower, burn barrel, home alarm, false home alarm, that there will also be a cost to the property owner?

    Most insurance companies standard coverage payable for fire suppression is $10,000.00, this may not be enough to cover the bill of a fire.  Within various municipalities, we have seen fire suppression invoices for grass fires as high as $11,000.00 and invoices for structure fires ranging from $8,000.00 to $28,000.00 and these invoices have come to us through three different fire services providers responding to the various incidents.

    Do you have enough insurance to cover these costs?  Do you need to increase your coverage?   What does your policy say?

    Be sure you take a look at your home insurance policy or talk to your insurance agent.  Most insurance companies provide an option for you to increase your various coverages for very reasonable additional costs.  Ask your provider if your policy covers and what amounts are covered specifically for grassland, fire suppression and call-out costs.
