Situated in the heart of the Canadian Badlands, Drumheller is home to dinosaurs, coal from days gone by, and unparalleled scenery.
With a population of 10,000 Drumheller and surrounding area has a vibrant business community based, among other things, on agriculture, tourism, and natural gas and oil.
Our town strives to keep up with the demands of modern-day living. We have been fortunate enough to contribute to our community through the Western Communities Foundation.
Previous recipients include:
- Town of Drumheller – Drumheller Memorial Arena – defibulator
- Kidsport – so all kids can play
- Drumheller and Area Health Foundation – contributions towards a trauma stretcher for the ER as well as donations to the cancer unit
In 2011, Drumheller made a major contribution to its citizens by helping to construct the Badlands Community Facility. An all-in-one sports, recreation and meeting area. The BCF boast a brand new library, work-out facility, walking/running track, indoor fitness centre, indoor play centre, small accessible meeting rooms and a large banquet facility. Through the generosity of the WCF – we were able to contribute $25,000 over 5 years to this project. We are truly proud to be part of this lasting legacy for generations to come.
