About Us

The sole producer of fine Belgian chocolates made in the Bow Valley, and Canadian Rocky Mountains.

Made by hand,
made with love.

Here at Le Chocolatier, our mission is simple. We craft fine chocolate creations; each one lovingly made by our own hands with a keen eye for detail, using only the freshest ingredients and the finest Belgian chocolate. Then, we share our passion with local customers and visitors from all around the world.

Unmistakable Quality.

Take one bite, and you’ll see: this is chocolate as it was meant to be. Our chocolates are made with whole food/natural ingredients, preservative-free, visually beautiful and offer flavour profiles that can be satisfyingly simple or deliciously complex.

Inspired by the mountains.

We are located in Canmore, Alberta – a one-hour drive west of Calgary and just east of Banff National Park in the spectacular Canadian Rockies. Whether you live, work or choose to play in this neighbourhood mountain-scape, a visit to our chocolate shop is always the best idea! We also ship anywhere across Canada where fine chocolate is cherished.

Our Shop

We create all Le Chocolatier confections at our independent chocolate shop in Canmore, Alberta (close to Banff) in the Canadian Rockies. Our 1,800 sq. ft. shop has a fully stocked chocolate retail storefront plus a glass wall for visitors to watch the magic happen. From here, we’re proud to ship our creations far and wide, allowing chocolate lovers everywhere to discover what our locals and visitors have enjoyed for many years.
