Heartland is majorly filmed in locations in Alberta, mainly around the High River. Additional filming locations were near Calgary, where different shots were taken. As for the seventh season of the drama, the scripts had to be written all over again in 9rder to move shooting locations for the fictional town of Hudson to Inglewood. This situation came forth after a potential flood ruined the set in High River.
After a month or so, the Calgary studios decided to enable a fundraiser during which the fans can pay a visit to the set. They would give away the behind-the-scenes sort of tour visit to the fans for one day in the designated Heartlanders for High River fundraiser. This helped the town get up to 80,000 US dollars to help the town recover from the loss caused by the sudden floods.
