As of December 31, 2015 Galahad became a hamlet of Flagstaff County. Visit the Hamlet section of this website for more information.
Galahad represents the grace and beauty of Alberta heartland. Situated just north of the beautiful Battle River Valley it is centered between Killam and Castor on Highways 861 and 36. The community is graced with the riches of the soil and a wealth of resources, with vibrant oil, coal mining and electrical power production. Galahad enjoys a trading area with traditional roots in agriculture and the promise of growth in a diversified economic base.
People have always been Galahad's primary resource. The Village exemplifies the Alberta tradition of warmth and hospitality. Social, cultural and recreational opportunities mix well with the many services Galahad offers. Galahad has a twenty bed fully modern long-term care facility that was built in 1990. The modern Agriplex offers a progressive library and a family bowling center and a fully serviced community event center.
Volunteer groups include Fire Department, Lions Club, Agricultural Society, Library Board, Galahad catering group, Galahad Hospital Auxiliary, Cemetery Society and more. The community also owns their own Cable Company, natural gas system and internet system (which is high speed- supernet). If your job takes you away from home, Galahad's quiet and peaceful setting is a perfect place to have your family reside.
