In 1908, the Canadian Pacific Railway initiated the construction of a Demonstration and Supply Farm in Strathmore, Alberta, as an integral part of their initiative to entice settlers to the prairies. Over time, this farm flourished and gained significant recognition as an "agriculturist mecca," solidifying its status as a showcase for the agricultural accomplishments of western Canada.

With its diverse array of offerings, the destination will captivate individuals with a deep interest in the agricultural industry, as well as those seeking to broaden their understanding of its past, present, and future.
The project team led by MVH Urban Planning & Design has created a draft Area Structure Plan that has been given an initial review by all Town departments. The next step in the process is to undertake community consultation on the draft Area Structure Plan (ASP). Following any revisions to the ASP, it will then be provided to the Town for final review and undergo the Town Council approval process that includes a public hearing and three readings of Council.
