    The Sylvan Lake Chamber has ordered rapid testing kits which employers can use to test their staff. Kits cannot be used to test family members or customers, and weekly reporting is required to use this program. It is also recommended you test your staff once or twice weekly.

    Rapid testing screening programs can identify pre-symptomatic and asymptomatic cases – people who don’t know they’re infected with COVID-19 – so they can be isolated early to stop the spread. 

    We expect to receive our order soon but will have a limited number of test kits as we determine the interest and demand in our community, as well as our capacity to effectively administrate the program.

    If you are interested in receiving test kits for your business, please use the link below and we will do our best to accommodate those that meet the criteria.

    The Sylvan Lake Chamber is proud to release our video: OUR TOWN, a shop local initiative funded by the Federal Government of Canada.

    Local video agency, IQ Productions wrote and produced the video and helped us share the long history of entrepreneurism and fortitude of Sylvan Lake through trying times - and to illustrate the domino effect buying local has.

    Businesses sponsor kids sports, donate to the many non-profit businesses, create local jobs, mentorship opportunities for youth, they sponsor a great many local initiatives such as the Sylvan Lake Winter Village and many other things that enhance our quality of life.

    Our hope with this project is to remind Lakers of the power they have when they choose to "shop local" to impact our overall quality of life in Sylvan Lake. 

    Please watch. Please share. Please continue to support our local businesses.

    We're excited to help bring the Sylvan Lake Winter Village to life for the 2021/2022 season! It has been a labour of love from the get-go. Indeed, it takes a village to #lightthelake! 

    Did you know it costs over $30,000 each year to make this seasonal happy-place happen? Not to mention the many volunteer hours, planning and fundraising - nevermind the labour involved with everything from checking a gazillion light strands before wrapping dozens of tree's, bushes and planters! But it's all worth it, we think you would agree.

    Our sponsorship drive is officially in full-swing, and we hope that you will choose to help us wow our residents and visitors for yet another magical season.

    Below we have outlined the various sponsorship opportunities, and if you would like to get along, here is a link to book your sponsorship.

    In the meantime, be sure to follow the Sylvan Lake Winter Village on facebook and instagram!


Our mission is to encourage and promote a positive, balanced, vital economy and preserve the unique qualities that make Sylvan Lake a great place to live, work and do business.


201, 110 Pelican Place

Sylvan Lake, Alberta
