About Amisk:

Amisk is a village in east central Alberta, Canada in the M.D. of Provost No. 52. The name comes from amisk, the Cree word for “beaver.” The site was surveyed by the Canadian Pacific Railway in 1906. That same year settlers from the United States, Scandinavia and Great Britain arrived. The first general store was built in 1907, and the school went up in 1916. Amisk boasts the oldest registered public library in rural Alberta. Amisk was incorporated on January 1, 1956. The population is 204, according to the 2016 census. Bill Rock is the current Mayor.
