2016 marks a milestone year for Westlock as the community celebrates a number of important accomplishments that took place in 1916. Westlock is celebrating one hundred years since the name "Westlock” was adopted. The name of the new town came from a combination of two families, William Westgate and William Lockhart, who owned the property. Westlock was incorporated as a village on 16 March 1916, with a population of 65 residents.
