Fairview

Located 124 km north of Grande Prairie, Alberta, on Highway 2 is the Canadian town of Fairview, with a population of 3150 people. Fairview is located about 560 km northwest of Edmonton, and 110 km north of Grande Prairie.

Fairview is in the heart of the Peace Country. It is fondly referred to as the "Heart of the Peace".

High-quality soil in the surrounding area attracted settlers in the early 1900s, who formed the hamlet of Waterhole. In 1928 the Central Canada Railway (later part of Northern Alberta Railways) was built through the area, but bypassed Waterhole. The inhabitants moved 6 km north to found Fairview at its present-day site.

Today, Fairview is a regional centre for agricultural machinery sales and oil exploration, and home of the NAIT Fairview Campus.
