Location of Patricia Alberta

Patricia is a hamlet in southern Alberta, Canada within the County of Newell.[1] It is located approximately 20 kilometres (12 mi) north of Highway 1 and 21 kilometres (13 mi) northeast of Brooks.

Patricia is next to Dinosaur Provincial Park, which is a UNESCO world heritage site. It was named after Princess Patricia. It was briefly famous in the 1970s when somebody willed a lot in the hamlet to then Prime Minister Pierre Trudeau. It made the news when he did not pay the taxes on the lot.


As a designated place in the 2011 Census, Patricia had a population of 108 living in 41 of its 50 total dwellings, a -5.3% change from its 2006 population of 114. With a land area of 0.59 km2 (0.23 sq mi), it had a population density of 183.1/km2 (474/sq mi) in 2011.[2]
