Welcome to the
Village of Spring Lake!
From Spring Lake’s peaceful meadows to its abundance of birds that call the lake home, the Village of Spring Lake is a quaint, tranquil community nestled along the shorelines of Spring Lake, Alberta. Known for its natural beauty and the wonders that have been preserved and protected over many decades, it has been described as a Nature Lover’s Oasis.
It is the perfect place for enjoyment and relaxation for all ages. So when you hear the call of the loons, take a moment to sit back and enjoy it and all that Spring Lake has to offer.

Day for Truth and Reconciliation
On September 30th, the Day for Truth and Reconciliation, Canadians learn, recognize, and reflect upon the history and ongoing legacy of residential schools, the trauma experienced by many, and the hope for a healthy future. The day emphasizes the ongoing need for reconciliation and building and strengthening relationships between Indigenous and non-Indigenous people.
September 30th is also Orange Shirt Day; a day when Canadians wear orange to recognize the ongoing intergenerational effects of residential schools and to acknowledge that “Every Child Matters”.
The orange shirt symbolizes the stripping away of culture, self-esteem and freedom from Indigenous children over generations.
Learn the truth about the past through events, books, films and other resources, and reach out to Elders or Knowledge Keepers, now and throughout the year.
How Orange Shirt Day Began:
Orange Shirt Day began in British Columbia in 2013 when a residential school survivor, Phyllis Webstad, shared her story of having her shiny new orange shirt taken away on her first day at a residential school. Since then, Orange Shirt Day has been an opportunity for Indigenous and non-Indigenous people, governments, schools and communities to come together in the spirit of reconciliation.
Commemorating the National Day for Truth and Reconciliation
Commemorating the Day for Truth and Reconciliation is a direct response to the Truth and Reconciliation Commission Call to Action 80, which called for a day to commemorate the history and legacy of residential schools.
In Spring Lake, we commemorate the day every year and encourage people to participate in events close to them.
