An agricultural center near the Alberta / Saskatchewan border, Oyen offers residents and visitors the grandeur of wide open blue skies in the heartland of Alberta’s vast rolling prairie. This tranquility is deceptive-Oyen is a modern urban community that provides excellent municipal services, medical services, modern schools, recreation/leisure facilities, senior accommodations, and the benefits of “big city” life without “big city” problems.
Through partnerships and alliances with other municipalities and government agencies residents of Oyen and surrounding communities have been able to survive and maintain an excellent quality of life.
