We are showing our support to the families of these children and all others impacted by the atrocities of the residential school system. The news is heartbreaking and we must all pause to think about the pain and suffering Indigenous children and their families endured.
Residential Schools are a black eye on Canada's history and we must not turn our heads away from it but rather recognize this shameful history, understand it and ensure it never happens again. The trauma of residential schools runs deep and will impact us for generations. This history is still very recent as the last residential school closed in just 1996.
Boyle is Joining other Municipalities across the county in this recognition and offer our solidarity with Indigenous People across Canada.
Once again we offer our deepest condolences and support to the families of these children and others who have been Impacted by Residential Schools in Canada.
Welcome to the Village of Boyle
CONGRATULATIONS BOYLE SCHOOL GRADUATING CLASS OF 2021

The Village of Boyle will begin flushing fire hydrants over the next few weeks for annual testing and maintenance.
Residents may notice some discoloured water if flushing is taking place in their area but running water for a short time in your residence will clear it up,
Hydrant flushing is the quick release of water from fire hydrants in a controlled procedure that is vital to the general maintenance of our water distribution system. It ensures adequate water flow is available to residents and businesses as well as to our firefighters during major firefighting efforts. It also helps maintain the water clarity and quality by clearing iron and mineral deposits from the water. Your water may become cloudy or may even have a brown tint when hydrant flushing is being performed in your area. This cloudy or tinted water is still safe to use and consume during hydrant flushing, but it may stain laundry. Please flush your taps after the hydrant flushing to help wash away any residual particles that may have entered your water line.
In 2021, Alberta Environment and Parks is mandating all municipalities to test for lead levels within their distribution systems. That majority of water mains in the Village of Boyle are AC piping with the balance poly-plastic piping. This means there is little to no risk of lead contained within the water distribution mains. There are currently no known lead pipe water mains within our distribution system according to administration records. Although the risk level of lead being found in the Village of Boyle’s distribution system are low, further testing is still required within homes.

The Village of Boyle jumped on the opportunity to use the Municipal Climate Change Action Centre (MCCAC) grant to upgrade the lighting in our Millview Recreation Complex. The new LED lighting will reduce the energy consumption and costs considerably and the luminescent has really made a difference in the brightness in the facility.
With the savings, we will realize by having the energy-efficient lighting we have been able to give the rest of the Complex a facelift, with painting, and repairs.
“The Village of Boyle Staff and Council is very proud to take advantage of this valuable program in order to enhance our community arena. It is because of great programs like the Municipal Climate Change Action Center (MCCAC) that communities around Alberta are able to do our part to be better stewards of our environment.” Says Mayor Colin Derko
