The Village of Youngstown

Where Quality of Life Meets Opportunity!

The Village of Youngstown, Alberta
The historic Village of Youngstown

.... is located in the heart of southeastern Alberta’s Ranch Country. It is home to just over 150 residents – with a population of about 6,700 in the surrounding regional “market catchment” area. Youngstown’s neighbours include the nearby Towns of Hanna and Oyen, both full-service communities within a short drive of the Village, as well as the many farmers and ranchers – and their families – who live in the surrounding rural “Special Areas.”

Mule Deer

Youngstown has long been known locally and throughout the region as a Sportsman’s Paradise, owing to the abundant wildlife and excellent hunting and trout fishing in the area. Youngstown’s reputation continues to grow and many from outside the region...from Snowbirds to young couples and families...are increasingly exploring the rural, small town character and affordable, high-quality of life the Village offers.
