Town of Beaumont
Originally a farming community founded 1895 by French settlers, Beaumont today is a progressive family oriented town. Observing Beaumont's roots, the downtown core is reminiscent of a French Village from the unique architecture to the red brick walkways. The Town's pièce de résistance, St. Vital Church built in 1919, is located on the "beautiful hill", which gave Beaumont its name.
One of the fastest growing communities in Canada, Beaumont’s population has more than doubled in the last 10 years and strong growth is expected to continue due to Beaumont’s proximity to industrial parks, commercial shopping centres, and the Edmonton International Airport. As the Town's population increases the demand for additional commercial development, including retail outlets and professional offices, is expected to grow.
Beaumont is home to many young and growing families; 24.6% of the population is under the age of 15 and 71.3% is under the age of 50. Residents also boast one of the highest average family incomes in the Capital Region at $123,815.
