Administrative history

The Smallholders Association for the MD of Rocky View was incorporated on August 21, 1968. The purpose of the organization was to oppose the assessment increases on smallholding property in the Municipal District of Rocky View No. 44. The Association was unable to get an assessment reduction at the Court of Revision and so contested the assessment increase in an Appeal in Joint before the Alberta Assessment Appeal Board on December 11, 1968. They lost the appeal and so the Association carried its case to the Supreme Court of Alberta, but was defeated again. The Association was dissolved soon after.

Immediate source of acquisition

Mr. A.E. Gerrish, Secretary-Treasurer of The Smallholders Association for the MD of Rocky View, deposited these records in the Provincial Archives of Alberta in 1972.


The majority of the records were received in a binder in chronological order, which was maintained, and a few loose sheets were put in chronological order and placed in a folder after the binder records. When reprocessing the records, the same order was maintained as detailed in the original inventory but the original file numbers recorded do not correspond to the current file numbers. The original numbering system is indicated in brackets on the current file.
