Airdrie Community Overview

Airdrie (2007 city population 31,512) is a city in Alberta, Canada, located just north of Calgary within the Calgary-Edmonton Corridor. It is part of Calgary's Census Metropolitan Area (Pop. 1,107,200 in 2006) and a member community of the Calgary Regional Partnership (CRP). Due to its proximity to Calgary, Airdrie's population has been exploding in recent years. As of 2007, Airdrie's population is 31,512, and is thus Calgary's largest politically distinct suburb. The city's boundaries are completely within the rural Municipal District of Rocky View, No.44.

Airdrie was first established as a railway village in 1889 during the construction of the Calgary and Edmonton Railway, named for Airdrie, Scotland by William McKenzie, a contracting engineer for Calgary and Edmonton Railway. Today, Airdrie is a scenic bedroom community and industrial centre. Its primary body of water is Nose Creek, which is the focal point of a number of city parks and green spaces including Nose Creek Park. The park hosts the annual Airdrie Festival of Lights in the Christmas season. Other annual festivals include the Canada Day Parade and the Airdrie Pro Rodeo. Airdire's primary cultural venues include the Nose Creek Valley Museum and the Bert Church Theatre

Recent annexation of land by Airdrie to the south, coupled with recent expansion of Calgary's city limits in July 2007, have placed the two cities' boundaries within only a few kilometres of each other.

Airdrie is situated on the Queen Elizabeth II Highway (Alberta's busiest highway) which connects Calgary and Edmonton, thus making it a small transportation hub. Airdrie is also served by the small Airdrie Airport that does not provide regular scheduled flights. The closest major airport is Calgary International Airport.
