About Fort Saskatchewan
Welcome to the beautiful city of Fort Saskatchewan. Nestled along the North Saskatchewan River in Alberta just 25 km northeast of Edmonton, this midsize city of about 25,000 residents was founded as a Northwest mounted police Fort, and later home to a large provincial gaol (a prison facility) with a history in law and order. The original fort was located across the river from Lamoureaux. It's bordered by Strathcona County to the south and east, Sturgeon County to the north and west, and Edmonton to the southwest. It's mostly known for its petrochemical facilities including Dow Chemical, Sherritt International, and Shell Canada. On the flipside of industry, it's also known for a flock of 50 sheep that roam the Fort Heritage Precinct throughout the summer months. Naturally, the city mascot is a sheep named Auggie. You can imagine there is a fine line between commercial industry and traditional charm.
