About the Community of Lethbridge:

Located at 528 6th Street South, Lethbridge, Alberta, ACT Medical Clinic is open 7 days a week, offering walk-in or episodic access to health care after hours and on weekends.

Lethbridge is a vibrant city of 86,000 located in beautiful southern Alberta - close to the mountains (about 70 miles from Waterton National Park and the Rockies) and an easy drive to Calgary.

Winters are warmer than in the more northern parts of the province - Chinook winds provide welcome thaws. The Chinook is a warm winter wind that keeps humidity low and moderates winter temperatures. Low annual precipitation rates make for an excellent climate and keeps summers warm and dry.

Lethbridge has excellent recreation facilities for both indoor and outdoor activities. There is skiing and mountain biking to the west. There are some lakes within twenty (20) minutes to a half an hour from Lethbridge for boating, wind surfing or sailing.

In the primary education system, there is a public and separate (Catholic) school system and also a number of private schools. The percentage of students moving on to advanced education is above average for most communities. In the area of post-secondary education, there is a large Junior College, Lethbridge College, and a small but highly accredited university, the University of Lethbridge. Both institutions offer a variety of Adult education extended and interest programs. The College and the University add to the vitality of the community.

The University of Lethbridge has excellent Arts and Education Departments, as well as a very good Science Department. Pre-Medicine and Pre-Dentistry programs are popular. The NeuroScience Department does a lot of good research and has an international reputation for excellence.
