The Village of Foremost is small community with big city appeal, located 110 km east of Lethbridge on the Red Coat Trail (Highway 61) and 102 km southwest of Medicine Hat. Established in 1913 as an agricultural service centre and incorporated as a village in 1950, today, Foremost has a population of over 500 and serves a trading area of over 2,000 people. A host of recreational facilities, a diversity of cultural activities, an award winning school and a broad range of businesses provide residents with a high quality of life. The community’s economic base is farming, with many generations of families continuing to operate successful farming operations.

The Foremost & District Chamber of Commerce invites you to discover Foremost. Our peaceful village of 500+ is located on the junction of highways 879 and 61 in South East Alberta. Foremost is in close proximity to such major parks as Writing-On-Stone, Forty Mile Park, Cypress Hills Interprovincial Park and Red Rock Coulee Natural Area.
