Welcome to Irma
The Village of Irma is a friendly community of 477 (2021 Census) people 90 minutes East of Edmonton and 20 minutes West of Wainwright. Our motto is “Looking to the Future” as a growing community.

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 was completed in 2020.
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 25 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.
