Birch Hills County

Birch Hills County is located in the Central Peace Region, bordered by the Peace River to the north and the Smoky River to the east. Located within the County are the hamlets of Eaglesham, Peoria, Tangent, Wanham and Watino. Oil and Gas provide the largest sector of employment in the county.

Birch Hills County Office will be closed Christmas Day-December 25, December 26 and New Year’s Day-January 1st. Birch Hills County Council and Staff would like to wish each and every one of you a Safe and Happy Holiday Season and a Prosperous New Year!

On Highway 49, two miles South of the Shaftesbury Ferry, a landslide occurred over the summer. Alberta Transportation has erected warning signs and there are also reduced speed signs in place. The slide area is barricaded and a detour in place. Please use extreme caution when travelling through this area.
