Improvement District No. 09 (Banff),[2] or Improvement District No. 9,[4] is an improvement district in Alberta, Canada. Located within Banff National Park in Alberta's Rockies, the improvement district is the municipality that provides local government for the portion of the park outside the Town of Banff.

History[edit]

Improvement District (I.D.) No. 9 was originally formed as I.D. No. 51 on April 1, 1945 through the amalgamation of I.D. Nos. 224, 255, 285, and 317, as well as portions of I.D. Nos. 193, 223, 253, 254, 284, 314, 315, 316, 347, 348, and 378.[2] I.D. No. 51 was renumbered to I.D. No. 9 on January 1, 1969.[2]

Formerly part of I.D. No. 9, Banff separated from the improvement district and incorporated as a town on January 1, 1990.[5]
