Municipal Naming

Reflecting the City’s heritage

Do you ever wonder how parks, roads, or City-owned buildings are named in St. Albert? Established in 2014, St. Albert’s Municipal Naming Policy aims to guide naming that reflects the city’s heritage, and recognize and commemorate noteworthy persons or organizations associated with the City. Names of individuals or organizations form the Significant Names List, a list of names consulted when the City names streets, parks, buildings, and other significant assets to the city.

Significant Names List

St. Albert residents have the opportunity to add names to the Significant Names List. Help honour those who have helped make our city what it is today! Be sure to review the full naming criteria outlined in the Municipal Naming Policy, and the Significant Names List to see if your proposed name is already on the list. Names submitted for addition to the Significant Names List are reviewed and evaluated annually by the Naming Committee, which consists of one representative from the following City departments and external organizations:

  • The Arts & Heritage Foundation
  • Cultural Programming
  • Fire and Rescue Services
  • Information & Technology Services
  • Planning & Development
  • Policing Services
  • Recreation & Parks
  • The St. Albert Historical Society

Suggest a Significant Name

Please note: The submission will be considered for addition to the Significant Names List at the next annual update of the list. Adding a name to the Significant Names List does not guarantee when or if that name will be used for any naming purpose. Submissions containing inappropriate language will be disregarded.
