Nestled in the heart of Sturgeon County, Bon Accord enjoys its proximity to the cities of Edmonton, St. Albert, and Fort Saskatchewan, and is situated along Highway 28, which is a major route to destinations in northeast Alberta.  The name is derived from the French phrase “Bon Accord”, the ancient motto of Aberdeen, Scotland, the ancestral home of the first settler.  The International Dark Sky Association designated Bon Accord an International Dark Sky Community in 2015 in recognition of the Town’s implementation of initiatives to preserve and enhance dark night skies over the community.  It was the first community in Canada and eleventh in the world to earn this designation.  Since that time, a solar farm was constructed which complements our environmentally progressive community!
