History[edit]

Chipman was incorporated as a village on October 21, 1913.[3] The village has the name of Clarence Campbell Chipman, a railroad official.[4]

Surrounding area[edit]

L.I.D. 27N4 administered the Chipman-Mundare area upon its first meeting July 14, 1906 with Councillors Michael Eleniuk (chairman), J. Wilinski, P. Bahry, and H. Theis (secretary treasurer).[citation needed] Councillors were paid $2 per day and the secretary treasurer’s salary was originally $100.[citation needed] On January 25, 1913, the area became the M.D. of Pines No. 516 with Councillors A. Achtemychuk (chairman), E. Halberg, M. Kozak, W. Miskew, J. Jakubec and A. Lappenbush. M. Korczynski was secretary treasurer.[citation needed]

In March 1944, the M.D. of Pines No. 516 was united with the municipal districts of Wostok and Leslie to form the M.D. of Lamont No. 516.[citation needed] It was later renumbered as M.D. of Lamont No. 82 on April 1, 1945.[5]

On January 1, 1968, the County of Lamont No. 30 was incorporated through the unification of the Lamont School Division No. 18 and the M.D. of Lamont No. 82.[5] It was eventually renamed to Lamont County on January 1, 2000.[5]
