The Village of Empress

is situated on the West side of the Alberta/Saskatchewan border and serves as a center to the surrounding farming and ranching community of 1,500 people. It has been a focal point for many activities in the area. It is also at the geographical center of many large cities in Western Canada: Edmonton, Calgary, Saskatoon and Regina.

Cemetery

The Village of Empress owns and operates a cemetery southeast of Town on a hill between the two rivers. The Village of Empress organizes a Town clean up every spring in June, weather permitting and volunteers are asked to assist the Town crew in an annual spruce- up. During the summer, the Town crew routinely maintains the grounds.

All monuments require a development permit that may be obtained at the Town office. Maintenance of monuments is the responsibility of the family of the deceased.
