Mossbank provides residents with a rural lifestyle that allows for many social and economic advantages. Free of the stresses of city life and surrounded by the beauty of the country, Mossbank residents can breathe deeply!
Mossbank’s many events and attractions draw visitors from all over Western Canada and beyond every year. The district’s colourful history provides the background for tours related to the Northwest Mounted Police’s March West, the British Commonwealth Air Training Plan Base, and the 1957 Debate between Tommy Douglas and Ross Thatcher. Other tours feature nearby Old Wives Lake, which as a national bird sanctuary, provides a bird watcher’s paradise.
Rich in history, Mossbank features a museum and an authentic blacksmith shop, that is a provincial heritage site. The Ambroz Blacksmith Shop was one of the last businesses of this type to operate in Western Canada. Every summer, the Museum and Mossbank Tourism host the Old Wives Lake Festival where modern blacksmiths provide demonstrations.
Every fall, Mossbank’s great waterfowl hunting area attracts hunters from all over North America. They are drawn by the community’s position on the major routes of migratory birds – not to mention the unbeatable small-town hospitality.
