Sturgeon County is a municipal district in Alberta's Edmonton Capital Region, Canada.

It begins at the north end of Edmonton, with 97th street turning into Highway 28. It extends east to Fort Saskatchewan and west to Calahoo. It is located in Division No. 11.

The county was incorporated in the current boundaries in 1955, as Municipal District of Sturgeon River No. 90. It first achieved county status in 1961, was subsequently disorganized, then established as a county again in 1997. It was named for the Sturgeon River.

Historically, the region was a part of a large ethnic block settlement of French-speaking Albertans. Today the county is less than 5% francophone. The area was first settled in 1879.
