Cold Lake is a city in northeastern Alberta, Canada, named after the lake near which it is situated. Cold Lake was first recorded on a 1790 map, by the name of Coldwater Lake. Originally three communities, Cold Lake was formed by merging the Town of Grand Centre, the Town of Cold Lake, and Medley (Canadian Forces Base 4 Wing) on October 1, 1996. Grand Centre was renamed Cold Lake South, and the original Cold Lake is known as Cold Lake North. Because of its origins, the area is also known as the Tri-Town.  The city’s economy is inextricably linked to military spending at CFB Cold Lake. The region also supports oil and gas exploration and production. The Athabasca Oil Sands project in Fort McMurray is having a growing influence in the region as well. The Cold Lake oil sands may become a significant contributor to the local economy. Cold Lake is situated near a large number of campgrounds due to its proximity to the lake.  The Cold Lake Provincial Park boasts a wilderness trail system, a beach, boat launch and a powered section.  Kinosoo Beach is a favorite destination during the hot summer months between June and August. The Iron Horse Trail, a recreational trail situated on a former railway line has its eastern-most terminus in Cold Lake. Portage College operates a campus at Cold Lake. Program offerings include academic upgrading, accounting, community social works, nursing, power engineering and university studies among others.

Canadian Forces Base Cold Lake is a Canadian Forces Base located in the City of Cold Lake.  It is operated as an air force base by the Royal Canadian Air Force (RCAF) and is one of two bases in the country housing the CF-18 Hornet fighter, the other being CFB Bagotville. Its primary RCAF lodger unit is 4 Wing, commonly referred to as 4 Wing Cold Lake.  Construction of what would become known as RCAF Station Cold Lake began in 1952 at the height of the Cold War after the site in Alberta’s “Lakeland District” was chosen by the RCAF for the country’s premier air weapons training base. The chosen location was near the former Town of Grand Centre (now part of the City of Cold Lake) and was based on factors such as low population density, accessibility, weather, suitable terrain, and available land for air weapons training.  Personnel arrived at Cold Lake on March 31, 1954, with operations at RCAF Station Cold Lake beginning that day. The following year, the federal government signed an agreement with the provinces of Saskatchewan and Alberta for use of a tract of land measuring 180 km by 65 km covering an area of 11,700 square kilometres. This became known as the Cold Lake Air Weapons Range (CLAWR) and is the raison d’être for the location of the base.
