Cold Lake is in northeastern Alberta and is named after nearby Cold Lake. Canadian Forces Base Cold Lake is situated within the city’s outer limits.
Cold Lake was first recorded on a 1790 map, by the name of Coldwater Lake. Originally three communities, the City of Cold Lake was formed by merging the Town of Grand Centre, the Town of Cold Lake, and Medley (Canadian Forces Base 4 Wing) on October 1, 1996. Grand Centre was renamed Cold Lake South, and the original Cold Lake is known as Cold Lake North. Because of its origins, the area is also known as the Tri-Town. The City of Cold Lake has a population of approximately 16,000 people.
