Vermilion Information

Vermilion is a town in Vermilion River County, central Alberta, Canada. For a small town, Vermilion is the hometown of several prominent Canadians, including cross-country skier Beckie Scott, hockey player Jeff Woywitka, cookbook author Jean Paré.

In Vermillion there is a new community centre be build. This new community centre will be located on land west of the Agricultural Society fairgrounds, 6 acres generously donated by the Lakeland College and Alberta Advanced Education. The design is projected to include a large hall, banquet area, and meeting rooms, but will ultimately lead up to the final amount of money raised. This building is intended to cater up to banquets of 600 people, crowds of 1000 seated people, and other similar situations. The blueprints have also been planned to accommodate several groups such as the Toy Lending Library and dance programs now currently sheltered in the aging Morrison Cultural Centre.
