Let’s Explore Becoming a Rosebuddy

Rosebud, Alberta  –  Our Common Narrative

Rosebud as the Cultural Heart of the Canadian Badlands. 

Join a community of delightful skills and varied interests. Together we create safe place for our citizens and guests that is creative and resilient. We are committed to be a welcoming home for all.

Explore a valley full of stories and longings: stories of nomadic people living here since the last Great Ice Age, stories of vast migrations, of settlers who came to start new lives, of cowboys who built sprawling ranches, of the last great open-range cattle round-up, stories of building a farming community, stories of rural survival in the face of overwhelming international urbanization.  Rosebud’s unique cultural history has flourished as a national treasure.

Rosebud has attracted writers, composers, artists, families and international friends. In winter its snow covered valley waits for the summer’s blaze of glory. But during all seasons it is open for new friends.

Today Rosebud’s heart is citizens who tell these stories, at home or on the world’s stages networking with other creative people. It is the farmers whose productivity feeds a hungry world. Come, celebrate with us in festivals and country living.

We invite you to hear our stories, see its beauty and share in community values. Be a citizen for a day, or a lifetime. Come away for a little while from the stress of urban pressures. Let us become part of your story, and you part of ours.  Come as a student to study here. Bring your children, who with wide-eyed wonder will travel to times only imagined. Spend hours floating down our lazy river or visiting our rural attractions. Why visit any other place when we long to have you here?

Consider raising your family, building your business, or launching your career here!
Rosebud is a quaint and out of the way place, but also a global centre attracting talent and visitors from around the world.
