Locations of Alberta's hamlets
Distribution of Alberta's 393 hamlets by latest population available

Hamlets in the province of Alberta, Canada, are unincorporated communities administered by, and within the boundaries of, specialized municipalities or rural municipalities (municipal districts, improvement districts and special areas). They consist of five or more dwellings (a majority of which are on parcels of land that are smaller than 1,850 m²), have a generally accepted boundary and name, and contain parcels of land used for non-residential purposes.[1][2]

Section 59 of the Municipal Government Act (MGA) enables specialized municipalities and municipal districts to designate a hamlet, while Section 590 of the MGA enables the Minister of Alberta Municipal Affairs to designate a hamlet within an improvement district.[1] The Minister may also designate a hamlet within a special area pursuant to Section 10 of the Special Areas Act.[3]

A hamlet can be incorporated as a village when its population reaches 300. However, Alberta has not had a hamlet incorporate as a village since January 1, 1980 when both Barnwell and Wabamun incorporated as villages.[4][5] Since then, it has been more common for urban municipalities to dissolve from their current municipal status to that of a hamlet under the jurisdiction of its surrounding specialized or rural municipality. As such, the number of hamlets in Alberta has steadily grown over the years.

As of 2020, Alberta has 398 hamlets recognized by Alberta Municipal Affairs.[6] Alberta's two largest hamlets – Fort McMurray (formerly a city) within the Regional Municipality of Wood Buffalo and Sherwood Park within Strathcona County – have been further designated as urban service areas by Municipal Affairs. If they were to incorporate as cities, Fort McMurray and Sherwood Park would rank fifth and sixth respectively among Alberta's largest cities by population. Alberta's newest hamlets are Gadsby and Granum, which both dissolved on February 1, 2020 to become hamlets under the jurisdiction of the County of Stettler No. 6 and the Municipal District of Willow Creek No. 26 respectively.[7][8]

The latest populations of hamlets are not published by Municipal Affairs, with the exception of the two urban service areas.[9]
