One of the largest school jurisdictions in Alberta, Prairie Land encompasses approximately 6,000 square miles in the East-Central region of the province. The Prairie Land school jurisdiction is sparsely populated and located a considerable distance from major urban centres.
Although geographically very large, the jurisdiction serves just under 1870 students in grades one to twelve, as well as approximately 120 kindergarten students. The economic base in the region is historically agricultural, although in recent years there have been increasing levels of energy related development.
The native people are known as Ojijakoos, or Little Cranes, and the band is titled the North Caribou Lake Band. Oji-Cree is the principle language spoken. The community is accessible year round by air, and during some winter months by an ice road network.
This region features one of the richest grain and cattle producing districts in the province. A perfect four seasons region makes this a great place for any family to settle into.
