Dalemead is a hamlet in southern Alberta under the jurisdiction of Rocky View County.[1]

Dalemead is located approximately 35 km (21 mi) southeast of Downtown Calgary and 3.2 km (2.0 mi) south of Highway 22X along a Canadian Pacific Railway line.

Established in 1913 with the CPR line, Dalemead was originally named Strathmead but after some confusion with the nearby Town of Strathmore, the name was changed to Dalemead. The present name is derived from the nearby dale, and the last name of Dr. Ellwood Mead.[2]
