    Historia administrativa

    In 1916, W.D. Albright received a contract from the Government of Canada to conduct agricultural experiments on his land. By 1917, the federal government established the Beaverlodge Experimental Farm with Albright as its superintendent.

    Now known as the Beaverlodge Research Station, the Station and its sub-station in Fort Vermilion are part of the Lacombe Research Centre and form the most northern agricultural research establishment in Canada. The Research Station specializes in research and development of technology for improved production systems for crops, honey bees and other pollinating insects adapted to environmental conditions in northwestern Canada. Research at the Fort Vermilion site focuses primarily on the adaptation of technologies for this northern agricultural area.
