Bruderheim has grown by 197 hectares after receiving provincial approval.
 
The town's limits will increase closer Highway 15 after a cooperative effort with Lamont County.
 
"We hope that the residents involved in the annexation will benefit from the agreement and will be happy in the Town of Burderheim," said Lamont County reeve Wayne Woldanski.
 
Annexation negotiations began in May 2014, with a number of open houses held for resident feedback and answer the concerns of affected landowners.
 
"We are proud of our commitment to work with neighbouring municipalities to ensure the best interests of the region," stated Bruderheim mayor Karl Hauch. "Throughout this process, we worked to create and to preserve the forward thinking sustainable strategies of both municipalities."
 
The town has long hailed the annexation as a way to strengthen their ability to develop services, amenities and housing over the next several decades.
 
Transition plans for services will be underway over the next several months.
 
Affected landowners with questions or concerns can call the Town of Bruderheim and ask for Sherry Cote at 780-796-3731.
