Andrew is a village in central Alberta north of Vegreville. Andrew is most famous as the home of the world's largest duck roadside attraction, part of the Giants of the Prairies. Its post office was established March 2, 1902.[4] The community has the name of Andrew Whitford, an early settler.[5]

Notable people[edit]

Ed Stelmach became Alberta's premier-elect to succeed Ralph Klein on December 3, 2006. This was the result of the provincial Progressive Conservative Party's election to pick a new leader. Stelmach had been a third-place contender, but came up the middle to win the race over the favoured frontrunners. He officially became the province's premier on December 14, 2006.
