The Municipal District of Ranchland No. 66 is a municipal district in southwest Alberta, Canada. Containing no urban communities of any kind, its municipal office is located in Chain Lakes Provincial Park,[3] approximately 38 km (24 mi) southwest of the Town of Nanton. Ranchland's rugged foothill terrain is unsuited for the crop agriculture practiced elsewhere in Alberta, and ranching remains the single livelihood of its inhabitants. With a 2016 population of 92, it is the least populated municipal district in Alberta, and its population density of 29 square kilometres for every resident is almost exactly equal to that of the Northwest Territories.

History[edit]

The municipal district was incorporated in 1995 from the Improvement District No. 6.
