Welcome to Irma
The Village of Irma is a friendly community of 521 people 90 minutes west of Edmonton and 20 minutes east of Wainwright. Our motto is “Looking to the Future” and as a growing community we do that.
We have a world class ball area that has held National events, and youth tournaments with as many as 37 teams. We also have an arena, curling rink, and golf course in the Village.
We have a K-12 school and in 2017 the province of Alberta announced Irma will be receiving a brand new school. Construction on this project is anticipated in 2018.
We have several eating establishments, two banks (ATB and Credit Union), a post office, a mechanic shop, an auto body shop, several shops, hair stylist parlour, a Co-op grocery store and Card Lock fuel station.
Our fire department is made up of around 20 volunteers who use state of the art technology and equipment to provide not just fire service but also some medical services to our community and area.
Every year during August Long weekend Irma holds “Irma Days” which is a weekend long event that has several activities like; ball, golf, curling (Yes curling in July-August), a rancher’s rodeo, kids zone, and much more.
Irma is supported by three main industries: oil & gas, agriculture, and the military base in Wainwright.
We are a proud, hardworking community who would love to see you stop by for a visit or call Irma home.
