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.

Each year, Etzikom holds its annual Fun Run.

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