Myrnam is a village in east central Alberta, Canada. It is located approximately 200 kilometres (120 mi) east of the capital city, Edmonton, and about 35 kilometres (22 mi) east-south-east of the town of Two Hills. Its economic base is mixed farming, cattle farming, and grain farming.
Myrnam's post office opened in August 1908, and a small settlement formed around it. It was largely made up of Ukrainian immigrants, and named itself with the Ukrainian word meaning "peace to us." The Canadian Pacific Railway established a siding and townsite in 1927, and named it after the original settlement. It was incorporated as a village on August 22, 1930.
Myrnam is located 5 minutes south of the North Saskatchewan River, which provides both summer and winter recreational opportunities. It is on a flyway for Canada geese, snow geese, and sandhill cranes, providing opportunities for birdwatchers. There are two bird sanctuaries located near Myrnam, and Fort de L'Isle Historical Site is nearby.
Located in Myrnam is New Myrnam School, with a K-12 student population of about 170. The school also educates children from the neighbouring communities of Derwent and Beauvallon.

The school also has a winter competition called Mukluk, usually held in February.
