Welcome to Trout Lake

The community of Trout Lake is located in northern Alberta within the Municipal District of Opportunity No. 17. It is located 48 kilometers (30 mi) east of Highway 88, 303 kilometers (188 mi) northeast of Grande Prairie.

There are about 500 people in the community. The children go to school at Northland School and the adults go to school at Northern Lakes College and travel to Peerless Lake to attend classes. Through Northern Lakes College, the students have the opportunity to take Alberta Basic Education, high school courses, Office Administration, Business Administration, Health Care Aide and many other programs. Students are taking Computer courses and they learn how to use internet.
