Clearwater was a provincial electoral district in Northern Alberta from 1913 to 1926.

District history[edit]

The district was controversial because it had only 74 enumerated people when it was created under the 1913 redistribution. It was the smallest district in terms of population in Alberta history. After Joseph State died in 1924, the United Farmers government was facing a possible by-election in the district. The government decided to redistribute the riding and drop the seat from the Assembly. The riding was divided up between Pembina, Lac Ste. Anne and Peace River.[1]
