Etzikom is a hamlet in Alberta, Canada within the County of Forty Mile No. 8.[1] It is approximately 20 kilometres (12 mi) east of Foremost on Highway 61.

Etzikom was founded in 1915.[2] Its name comes from the Blackfoot language word for valley or coulee, referring to Etzikom Coulee.

Etzikom is also home to The Canadian National Historic Windmill Centre, a museum dedicated to windmills throughout history.

Each year, Etzikom holds its annual Fun Run.

Etzikom's respresentative in Alberta's provincial legislature is Drew Barnes.[3]
