The Village of Boyle is located along Highway 63, 150 kilometres north of Edmonton. Boyle is centred in the hub of the forestry, agriculture and natural resources sectors and has a population of almost 1,000 people. Located within Boyle is a dimensional lumber sawmill owned by Millar Western Forest Products Ltd. that produces up to 135 million board feet of lumber per year and, 40 kilometres northwest of Boyle, is the largest single-line kraft pulp mill in North America, owned by Alberta-Pacific Forest Industries Inc. (Al-Pac).
Boyle supports a large industrial service corridor, via Highway 63 which is the primary transportation route to Fort McMurray and the Athabasca Oilsands. Future twinning of this high load corridor will consequently increase value for the community, enabling more development for industrial services.
The Boyle region is also situated in the heart of a vast outdoor playground, home to a number of lake communities offering exceptional recreational and cottage-country amenities.
The Millview Recreation Complex  boasts a beautiful mezzanine and viewing area to watch the activites on the lower ice level. Boyle minor hockey engages our local youth in extracurricular activty. The Boyle Curling Club offers a 3 sheet facility which is connected by way of a pedway to the Millview Recreation Complex. Curling rink is complete with kitchen, mezzanine viewing area and concession.

Boyle District Chamber of Commerce - Our Profile

The Boyle District Chamber of Commerce sees as its primary focus to promote Boyle and area businesses, and provide the support and resources they need. Our mission is to advance, foster and promote trade and business development in the Boyle area. In all decisions we make, we ask: Does it fit with our mission? Will it build the business community? Does it add value for the membership? We have successfully built out membership base: 60 companies representing almost 1,400 employees – both full- and part-time. A strong membership allows us to do a better job for member businesses in regard to our role as their business advocate. We may at times work with the Village of Boyle, but we work for our members.  We have established a number of programs, such as the Shop Local initiative and the Welcome Kit promotion for new residents of Boyle to introduce them to the businesses and services available to them in our community. We also established a Resource Centre for local businesses at the Village of Boyle office. An array of information and materials are available in this centre to assist local businesses by providing the information and resources they may need to operate and grow their businesses.
