Albertville, a small, mainly Francophone village situated northeast of Prince Albert, was established at the beginning of the 20th century.

In 1914, the year its first post office opened, the Francophone village of Albertville created its own credit union, becoming one of the pioneers in the field of banking cooperatives in Saskatchewan. Founded by Father Abraham-Louis Lebel to improve the economic situation of farmers in the parish, it was small and it ceased operations in 1936. However, its existence shows the importance of cooperative values to French Canadians.

Today, there are about 110 people living in the Albertville region, most of them farmers.

Situé au Nord-Est de Prince-Albert, Albertville est un petit village à majorité francophone qui a vu le jour au début du 20e siècle.

En 1914, la même année que l’ouverture de son premier bureau de poste, la communauté francophone d’Albertville devient une des pionnières dans le secteur des coopératives de crédit en Saskatchewan en fondant sa propre caisse populaire. Fondée par le curé Abraham-Louis Lebel dans le but d’améliorer la situation économique des fermiers de la paroisse, celle-ci fonctionnera très modestement et finira par cesser ses activités en 1936. Son existence permet par contre de constater l’importance des valeurs coopératives pour les Franco-Canadiens.

Aujourd’hui, la région d’Albertville compte environ 110 habitants, majoritairement des agriculteurs.
