A thriving town in east-central Alberta with a population of 981, Killam combines a modern urban lifestyle with the traditional values of a rural community.
 


Location

Killam is situated at the junction of two major highways, #13 the alternate to the Yellowhead extending east and west, and #36 extending north and south. Highway #36 was selected as an appropriate highway to remember Alberta Veterans because it runs most of the length of  the province for 626 kilometers from Warner to Lac La Biche.  A total of 82 trailblazer signs have been erected, while the existing Highway #36 signs will remain.  Approximately 2,500 vehicles travel the Veterans Memorial Highway each day.
 


Economy

In addition to serving the travelling public, economic activity revolves around the agriculture and oil and gas industries.

Killam area farms produce all the major grain and livestock varieties. Equipment dealers, welding shops, and mechanics work closely with area farmers to keep the industry growing.
