Known as “The Heart of the Peace” because of its location in the centre of the Mighty Peace Region, the forward-thinking community of Fairview offers fantastic recreational amenities for sports enthusiasts, families, and nature lovers alike.
“I lived for a short time in Fairview where I spent time creating artwork and playing hockey for the Fairview Kings. I have never felt so welcomed by a Town like I was in Fairview. It is not a town to me, it is an extension of my family now. The beauty of the environment, the Dunvegan bridge greeting me every time I go to visit and the quaintness and welcoming spirit of the community are something I have never experienced anywhere else in my travels across Canada. To be able to create a mural for the community was a highlight of my art career and I will always treasure my years in Fairview as some of the best days of my life.”
– Phil Alain, Canadian Artist
