Elkford is a picturesque Rocky Mountain town incorporated on July 16, 1971 as a home for miners working at newly-established Fording Coal operations. From its early days as a collection of temporary homes, a one-room school and a single general store, Elkford has grown to its current population of nearly 3,000 residents.

Elkford provides residents and visitors with endless outdoor activities to engage in and is a great place to live, work and play. 

On July 16, 2011, the District of Elkford is hosting a 40th birthday party celebration in the Elk’s Ball Field. All residents are welcome to attend. For more information, please visit www.elkford.ca.
