Lloydminster’s Population

Growth was substantial - especially in the 1920’s, 1940’s, 1970’s and the first decade of the 21st Century. Also remarkable is the shift from the Saskatchewan to the Alberta side of the community.

Below: a group of new arrivals poses in front of Immigration Hall, built in 1904 with Federal Government assistance after reports of two or three settlers dying of exposure in tents or makeshift shacks during the first winter.  The Hall, located on the east side of 49 Ave., just north of 50 Street, served as a community centre, hospital and police station in those early years.
